The exhibition, housed in six containers, will show the Port’s activity and its relationship with the riverside towns
With a view to showing society the history, activity and economic importance of the Port of Bilbao, as well as its relationship with the riverside towns, the Port and River of Bilbao Foundation has inaugurated the Itinerant Exhibition, PortArt, on the esplanade of the River of Bilbao Maritime Museum. This event, inspired by the artistic movement of the late 1950s, is housed inside six 20-foot containers, whose external and external decoration is inspired by the work of pop artists.
The members of the Foundation – the Port Authority of Bilbao
together with the towns of Bilbao, Barakaldo, Erandio, Sestao, Santurtzi, Leioa, Getxo, Portugalete and Zierbena.- are collaborating in organizing the exhibition.
