Art with Archipel - Artworks made by elderly people
Art with Archipel Artworks made by elderly people
In recent months, clients, volunteers and staff members of Archipel, thought hard about how to translate the subject 'Future' into a work of art. That could be about your own future, but also about the future in general, beautiful innovations or even about the environment or dreams that have never been realized. During workshops in the museum and locations of Archipel they looked at art together and they discovered the artist in themselves.
On September 27 the jury, consisting of residents and employees of Archipel and staff of the Van Abbemuseum, visited the participating locations. On this day you could see and sense the passions for painting and the enthusiasm of the creators.
We are honoured to present twenty selected artworks made by clients of Archipel.
