ART, PATRONAGE AND SPONSORSHIP
Committed to cultural development
Patronage, supporting new forms of artistic expression and the restoration of cultural heritage are the main channels through which Iberdrola group's commitment to culture finds expression. The company fulfils this commitment sustainably, supporting initiatives and programs geared to conserving and promoting cultural heritage and actions that foster and contribute to spreading the creative force of contemporary culture.
Iberdrola's support for culture, art and society takes the form of:
- Projects to restore and illuminate historical buildings
- Exhibitions held in collaboration with various centres
- The Iberdrola Art Collection
Examples of this include the temporary exhibitions sponsored by Iberdrola, including, for example, the exhibition of works by Olafur Eliasson. In Real Life, which is currently on display at the Guggenheim Bilbao, or the travelling exhibition El Prado in the Streets that has visited several parts of the country and is giving people everywhere an opportunity to see important works from this great art gallery.
It is also worth mentioning the other exhibitions staged by the Thyssen-Bornesmisza and the Sorolla Museum exhibition. Currently on display in the latter is the exhibition Sorolla. A Tireless Illustrator.
Iberdrola also supports restoration and lighting projects for works of art and symbolic buildings. In addition, it also publishes specialist books.
