Art tour: The Friends and Patrons of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

Museum on the seam

Last December I had the huge pleasure and honor to help coordinate a week-long Art tour in Israel for the Friends and Patrons of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. The trip was organized by the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao with the logistic support of Mikel Gonzalez from from Viajes Mundo Amigo S.A. It was the group’s first visit to Israel and we created an in-depth program which included visits to vibrant art venues in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and exclusive meetings with Israeli artists and art professionals working in those cities.

I take this opportunity to thank again the organizers, the group, the museum and of course the participants who kindly hosted us.

Here are the highlights from the trip in pictures:
