|Bilbao is the proud home to the Guggenheim
Art Museum, a modern Frank Gehry creation,
covered in titanium plates that curve to resemble
fish scales. No straight walls anywhere!
|“Puppy” is one of the art sculptures. Cute!|
|Oh, mercy. The opposite of cute would
have to be the spider sculpture, which
I swear looks like it’s about to devour us.
|The spider sculpture with more of a sense of
scale. The long bridge next to it has a fog
“sculpture” that appears about once an hour.
|The art is so different at the Guggenheim.
With no straight walls, no framed paintings.
Hot rolled rusted steel spirals took up a
space as big as a football field.
|Pink and blue messages chasing up and down
3 stories. We were cracking up at the audio
guide comments – some of this stuff is really
a stretch. It’s not the Louvre, that’s for sure.
