Art4Kids: strictly prohibited for (grand) parents!

This May holiday, Art4Kids - a unique sales exhibition exclusively for children - will be held in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen for the sixth time. Children may select one of the works on show all by themselves. They can then buy it for just 35.00. Parents and grandparents are strictly prohibited...

Art4Kids has become something of a tradition; Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has been organising this event for more than ten years and each time with considerable success. Around 1500 children took part in previous exhibitions. For this year’s exhibition, the director of the museum has invited 26 Dutch artists, many of them from Rotterdam, to make a special work. Each work is signed by the artists. Many artists have decided to submit a unique work.

Come to the special opening on Saturday 28 April at 11.30 am with Sebastian Wulff (Luxor in SpangaS). Can’t make it? The exhibition is open for the rest of the week from 11 am to 5 pm (closed on Queen’s Day). The exhibition can be visited free of charge by children and parents, although the latter will have to wait outside.

The works of art have been made especially for Art4Kids; they have been produced in a limited edition. The artists who will be making their work available are: Daan Botlek, Karin van Dam, Rudy d'Arnaud Gerkens, Ada Dispa, Suzan Drummen, Lizan Freijsen, Maartje Folkeringa, Helen Frik, Hans Hovy, Evelyne Janssen, Ad de Jong, Paul Klemann, Kinke Kooi, Olaf Mooij, Paul Nassenstein, Serge Onnen, Johan van Oord, Bertjan Pot, Mike Redman, Paul de Reus, Lies Ros, Johanna Schweizer, Tanja Smeets, Rik Smits, Anne-Marie van Sprang and André van de Wijdeven.

With thanks to
This year’s Art4Kids has been made possible thanks to the support of the main sponsor Rabobank Rotterdam, which supports the educational activities of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen with a long-term agreement and thus make this year’s Art4Kids possible. In addition, the Georgetina Foundation supports 50 children from Rotterdam in the purchase of a work of art.
