Amasté

The open floor plan of this gallery, inaugurated in 1995, is in itself a clear indication of its dedication to contemporary art. Some of the exhibitions organized are truly daring and can be appreciated only by the most insightful. Amasté's philosophy is exactly that: to open doors to contemporary artists, spanning several genres, such as photography, painting and sculpture and any other form of artistic expression, difficult to define as a "fine art". Ricardo Antón Troyas is the gallery director and his sister, Elena, runs the specialized shop for artists' supplies located in the back.

The Carreras Mugica gallery can be found on a quiet part of this busy street. It defines itself as a contemporary art gallery, specializing in paintings and sculptures. The high quality exhibits feature both renowned artists and promising, younger painters and sculptors who, while not well-known, do have a solid career behind them.

Museo Guggenheim Bilbao

Museo Guggenheim Bilbao's first exhibit included a collection of over 250 examples of cubist, futurist, constructivist and other 20th-century art movements. The museum features a permanent collection of late 20th-century art spotlighting more of the century's best creative talents including young Basque and Spanish artists. Famous works include those by renowned artists like Richard Serra, Willem de Kooning, and Clyfford Still. Frank O. Gehry designed this complex with spectacular curtains of glass, stone curves, titanium and glass walls, walkways hanging from the ceiling, transparent elevators and immense open spaces that offer a mesmerizing foil for the avant-garde art it houses.

Museo de Reproducciones Artísticas

Created in 1927, this old museum exhibits full-size reproductions of original sculptures in plaster, of some of the best known works in the history of Art. The collections range from Ancient Art (Mesopotamic and Egyptian civilizations) to Classic Art (ancient Greek, Classical, Hellenic and Renaissance). Museo de Reproducciones Artísticas is well-known among artists and painters in Bilbao, as a lot of them have been there for drawing, painting and modeling lessons from Manu, dubbed 'El Ruso'. The museum also has a video library and a photographic laboratory. In the audiovisual room you can learn to sculpt using the 'grafting' method. The newly restored La Iglesia del Corazón de María is used to organize art exhibitions. Check website for more details.
