During the autumn half-term holidays, from Saturday 13 to Sunday 28 October, kids get the chance to buy a work of art by a famous artist for 35 euros – with no help from over eighteens!
In this latest edition of Art4kids, visitors aged five to eighteen can acquire a real work of art in the museum. The screen prints, sculptures, drawings and other artworks have been made specially for the exhibition by twenty-six contemporary artists. The works are on sale only for the children.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s successful biennial selling exhibition, Art4Kids, is taking place for the sixth time this autumn, and this time for two weeks instead of one. Earlier editions attracted more than a thousand children.
One can't argue about tastes
Art4Kids exposes children to art at a young age. The artists’ names are not displayed, so the children have to base their choice on their own taste, and adults are not allowed in. They have the opportunity to turn their preferences into purchases. For these art collectors-to-be, it's a great opportunity to start their own art collection.
