Venice Italy hosts an exceptional Art Scene.  Here are some photos of an exhibition that will be going on while I am there.  This particular installation is titled  "GENIUS-Loci - Spirit of Place".  It is presented by the Lisson Gallery of Venice.

These are just some examples of one particular Exhibit.

Another "Must Do" on my List is to visit the
"Peggy Guggenheim Collection"
AND fortunately for me, it is located in my "neighborhood" Dorsoduro!

As you might be able to tell, I am a huge fan of Contemporary and Modern Art.  What I find so facinating about Venice is that in this Ancient City with all of it's History and throve of Work by the Masters, it is also home to some very significant Contemporary Works.
