2022 marks the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and, following the varied programme of commemorative events held to date in the artistic and cultural spheres, and having just finished a summer of record-breaking visitor numbers, the Museum will continue its anniversary celebrations until December.

As with those already held, the events that will take place in the coming months will respond to the values that inspire this anniversary: celebration, highlighting the value of the Own Collection, gratitude, inclusiveness and the reinforcement of unity, pride and belonging, without forgetting transformation and future projection, also reflected in the slogan that presides over the commemoration: "Art inspires the future".
