Collections Works

Discover the collection of works by Eduardo Chillida by walking through the garden and visiting the interior of the Zabalaga farmhouse.

Miró en Zabalaga

Chillida Leku presents Miró at Zabalaga, from 21 May to 1 November, an exhibition as a tribute to Joan Miró and the friendship that united him with Eduardo Chillida.

The Garden

The 11-hectare Chillida Leku garden is home to more than 40 monumental sculptures. The carefully arranged works converse with nature as well as with one another. There are two distinct areas in the external part of the museum.

Zabalaga country house

The sculptor maintained the traditional identity of the country house in the restoration works. Outside, the country house retains its traditional appearance. Its mixed walls alternate masonry with ashlar. The latter, in particular, is used around the bays. Two triangular buttresses have also been preserved at both sides of the south facade. The building retains the wooden structural framework and the original Zabalaga family coat of arms, which is carved into the north facade.

Chillida approached the building restoration as though it were a sculpture. It was a long process, governed by freedom of action and by a double purpose: to introduce space inside the building and to preserve its identity.

Lurra Cafe

Lurra Cafe is the product of a partnership between Chillida Leku and Orona Fundazioa. The project first originated from the idea of providing healthy and sustainable food for the employees and visitors of Orona and evolved to become an active agent in the local economy, championing the values of social and environmental responsibility.  This philosophy is shared by Chillida Leku and Lurra, which are located just one kilometre away from Orona.

Shop

The museum store is located in the visitors’ pavilion and has been completely refurbished. In the store, visitors will have access to a carefully curated selection of art books, heavily focused on Eduardo Chillida’s work, as well as specialized publications that will be periodically updated.

Learning at Chillida Leku

The Chillida Leku Education Department brings visitors closer to the work of Eduardo Chillida and to the museum program. Staying true to the artist’s philosophy that “art isn’t taught”, the museum’s tours and activities offer a direct experience of Chillida’s artworks based on observation, experimentation, reflection and action.

The Education Department approaches the museum as a meeting place—an open and welcoming place that facilitates an exchange of knowledge and experiences. It is an active space that generates learning processes which are adapted to the needs of its users.

The Department also creates alliances and networks with local agents, schools and institutions. The museum listens to the needs of the education community and is open to the possibility of setting up collaborative projects which not only facilitate greater dissemination of the work and philosophy of Eduardo Chillida, but enable a greater understanding of his work.

About Chillida Leku

Chillida Leku is a unique museum created by Eduardo Chillida in his lifetime, and is a great work of art in itself. Nature and art naturally come together in the space which encompasses more than 40 large scale sculptures that are integrated into the landscape as though they had always been part of it. In the garden, beech, oak and magnolia trees live alongside the monumental steel and granite sculptures of Eduardo Chillida, situated in perfect dialogue with their surroundings.
