Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch
In May 2013, Princess Beatrix opened the new Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch, which together with Noordbrabants Museum constitutes the new Museum Quarter in Den Bosch. This wonderful museum shows contemporary art and design for a broad public, hoping to explain how developments in society and art are intertwined.
Art and Society
Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch does not show art for art’s sake but rather explores the mutual influence art and society exert on each other. The collection boasts works by famous artists like Picasso and Mendini as well as Dutch heroes like Gijs Bakker and Hella Jongerius. The museum also makes ample space for upcoming talents.
In addition to the permanent collection, the museum features around ten temporary exhibitions each year to demonstrate the cross-pollination that occurs between art and design. You can also attend lectures, concerts and workshops, so Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch always has something fascinating to offer. It is located on De Mortel 4 in Den Bosch.
