Madrid has a strong artistic atmosphere, especially in the Retiro district – three major art museums formed a Golden Triangle of Art which has one of the most prestigious classical art collection in the world.
The park is just getting more special – Yayoi Kusama is a world-recognized avant garde modern artist and her polka dots could be spotted and recognized by many many art-lovers in a heartbeat.
Outside the café you there is a pop-up gift shop and exhibit of Kusama’s exhibit imageries; something that art fans should not be missed! http://wp.me/p5Lw9a-co
It is one of the most important and largest art museums in the world, where it would take you days, or even months to appreciate the precious exhibits one by one.
That was also the time I visited the Alexander McQueen’s exhibition – Savage Beauty. It was one of the most unforgettable and core-shaking exhibition that I have seen in recent years.
The great thing about DDP is because it’s open for public, it’s permenant, it’s located in a prime location, it has shops and it constantly has different theme exhibitions; therefore, people from all walks of life could be inside the building and “enjoy something” with it.
