18 October:  Gelderse Museum Day with Het Wilde Oog (The Wild Eye)

Admission to the Kröller-Müller Museum is free on the Gelderse Museum Day, Saturday 18 October. The Gelderse Museum Day is an initiative of the Province of Gelderland. On this day, a great many museums in Gelderland offer an extensive programme. At the Kröller-Müller Museum we have workshops by Het Wilde Oog, which are open to all ages free of charge. A valid admission ticket is all that’s needed to participate. The museum itself can be visited for free on 18 October, but access to the Hoge Veluwe National Park costs the regular admission fee.

Het Wilde Oog workshops
De kunst van Wild Kijken & Lenig Denken (The art of Wild Looking and Nimble Thinking). Under the motto ‘Wild Looking & Nimble Thinking’, Theatre Atelier Het Wilde Oog (Hans Lemmerman and Inge van Run) seek special encounters between theatre, visual art and the Spakenburgse Divas (women in Spakenburg traditional costume). Het Wilde Oog challenges visitors to engage in the dialogue with visual art and theatre, resulting in exciting photographic portraits that take a fresh look at the museum’s collection.

There will be three different workshops: from 11.00 to 11.45 hrs, from 13.30 to 14.15 hrs and from 15.00 to 15.45 hrs. Please click here for more information about the workshops. There is also a continuous film and photography presentation by Het Wilde Oog and on entering the museum everyone can participate in a design commission (with prize contest), based on a work by Stanley Brouwn.

Besides the special activities of Het Wilde Oog, families can also make a voyage of discovery in the sculpture garden with the museum’s detective game (from 4 years old).
