Metro Bilbao (Basque Country - Spain) Bilbao, a small city in the Basque region, is proud of their subway system, not only because of its speed and efficiency, but also because of its design.

Wouldn't it be fun if artists were encouraged to do this type of artwork in public places all over the world!
