Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Spain
Photograph - Photography And Digital Art
With all its varying lines and curves, it isn’t hard to find yourself photographing the Guggenheim Art Museum in Bilbao Spain from all angles and at all times of the day! You don’t even need to go inside the museum to view the art since some large works of art that outside on the grounds of the museum. Here is the late afternoon with the sun setting behind the museum, you can see the last vestiges of Fujiko Nakaya’s Fog Sculpture in the foreground and Anish Kapoor’s Tall Tree and the Eye in the distance on the right. Jeff Koons’ colorful Tulips are on the museum patio. It isn’t a far stretch to say that the opening of the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao Spain singlehandedly made the city of Bilbao a must-visit destination in Spain. The city was in decline in the late 1900s as its major industries of shipbuilding, and coal and steel production became outdated. In the 1990s, the American Guggenheim foundation was in search of a location for a European museum. As unlikely as it seems, the declining city of Bilbao was chosen and in a short period of four years the entire area along the Nervion River was transformed. The architect Frank Gehry was chosen for the project. The rusty dockyards disappeared and were replaced by green spaces, promenades, and a gigantic framework of curved steel. Corners and straight lines disappeared, replaced by waves, arches, and curves. The museum opened in 1997 and was overrun by art and architecture fans from all over the world.
