The last couple of weeks we were busy with restoring and painting a new layer on the floating art installation ‘Zeehond op Zuid’/’Seal of the South’.
We invited the kids from Rotterdam-South and the kids’ playground Sportspeeltuin Hillesluis to help us with the new painting.
The official opening of the artwork at the small lake of the Varkenoordsepark is on 12th of June, at 2 pm.
After two design workshops with the senior citizens of Rotterdam North, we finally started with painting the Bath Bunny into the colors of the fantastic winning design of Tineke Noordzij.
The official opening of the Bath Bunny is on April 17, 13.30 in the Vroesenpark. You’re welcome to join and see the new summer outfit!
Last week we had 2 drawing contests for the new coat of the ‘Zeehond op Zuid’. This year we will work together with the seniors and children from the area Hillesluis in Rotterdam. We visited the ‘Huiskamer van de Wijk Hillesluis’ and the ‘Sportspeeltuin Hillesluis’ to draw with us for the design.
On March 10, we were at the Paard in the Hague to give the contestants and visitors of the KUNSTBENDE (category bands and dj) a bandana folding workshop.
Would you also like to know how you can fold a cool Kunstbende yellow/black bandana in a headband, bow, small bag or something else? Visit also our other bandana workshop at Kunstbende Noord-Holland and Kunstbende Zuid-Holland, on April 14, 2019.

At the moment we are very busy with the preparations of our mega XXL bed. Because the OBA (Openbare Biblioheek Amsterdam) exists 100 years, they organized a special program during the coming 3 months. And our huge bed is traveling along several different OBA’s.

The Stedelijk Museum Schiedam asked us to think about some activities during their small winter holiday festival ‘Kerstival’ (https://www.stedelijkmuseumschiedam.nl/activiteit/kerstival/).
We designed for them a special Christmas star Wishing Wall. The star is inspired by their new logo, an Asterix. Visiters could knot their wishing ribbon on the wall. And we also pimped up a bit their photobooth area with a special made Gingerbread man and some other suits:)
Come at visit the interesting Chess Exhibition at the Public Library Rotterdam till January 20, 2019!
