2005 – 2008

Art & Life

Part of: Van Straaten

Van Straaten invests in the future. Both the Van de Velde wing and the Quist wing are being renovated. This is also the moment for him to review his policy. The public is central in this: ‘the museum has no reason to exist if there is no interaction with the visitors’. His acquisitions also attest to a social approach with which he seeks to add ‘extra colour’ to the atmosphere of the museum.
