During my 2014 European travels I enjoyed an opportunity to explore plenty of street art. Today's installment comes from Suvilahti district [wiki]: once a power plant, now a place for artists and cultural events. I found this place in the best possible way, by getting lost.

I'd originally intended to pop in for a few minutes - I actually considering saying something like "I'll pay you ten bucks just to let me see Les Demoiselles d'Avignon" - but a good deal on tickets persuaded me to dedicate a morning to MoMA. And, wow, I'm glad I did. The Picasso was indeed worth a detour, but my favorite part was an opportunity to study other folks' reactions to the collection.
