The Van Abbe Museum launched an exhibition today with paintings of clients of the Archipel care facility.
Last year there were also about twenty paintings of residents of Archipel on display. This time a panel of judges has chosen seventeen pieces which will be on display at the Van Abbe Museum. According to Archipel, art is important for its residents, because they remain connected to society in this way.
Clients of Archipel participated in workshops by artists as well as guided tours of the museum. Inspired by the collection of works of the Van Abbe they started and were able to discover the artist within. The panel of judges chose the final seventeen pieces of paintings and drawings last month out of numerous pieces. The panel of judges consists of employees of Archipel, the Van Abbe Museum, an artist and residents of Archipel. The exhibition runs from January 21 until January 31.
