Bilbao - Guggenheim

After all the port Gothic cities now a post industral city. The usual redevelopment along the dock lands. Open spaces to walk along, where the city can spend time together. In this area of renewel is the Guggenheim art gallery. Where audio guide introduces the building, asking you to stroke the sides, respond to the visual emotion the structure invokes. I like museums. Safe, nothing else to be lost taking it all in, the outside is outside and you are in. No distraction. Did not have time to check everything out. So I checked out the exhibition 'Russia!'. Art work from Icon art used in the Russian orthodox religion to present day modern art. Really thought provoking. if you have time check it out.
