Art in the streets is always a good idea - I have alsways thought that musems are often too sterile locations for art... art is to be lived and touched, especially sculptures. When I was visiting granada in february 2008 I was then pleasantly surprised to see some Rodin statue, including the Thinker, around Puerta Real. I had seen them "locked" up in a museum in paris, and had not really raved about. In Granada, I found them stunning, full of life and character.

it is not the first time that the city hosts Rodin sculptures: the first time had been until December 17, 2007 9th December 2007. This second Rodin exhibition, unfortunately, is now over, since it ran fro a very short time only, from February 5 through March 30th, 2008. But there is hope for more similar events in the future.
