1966 – 1967

Between art and nature

Part of: Oxenaar

In his first three years, director Rudi Oxenaar formulates a vision for the museum that revolves around the ‘encounter between art and nature’. He is also increasingly involved in international platforms for art. He is commissioner for the Dutch contingent at the 33rd Venice Biennale and a member of the selection and placement committee for the 5th international sculpture exhibition in Sonsbeek Park in Arnhem. Meanwhile in Otterlo a second extension of the sculpture garden is realized.
