Art makes the (wo)man

Visiting the elderly

The Van Gogh Museum launched the programme Kunst maakt de Mens (Art makes the (wo)man): an art programme with which the museum introduces older people to Vincent van Gogh. The launch was attended by Alderperson for the city of Amsterdam  Eric van der Burg (Care, Welfare and Senior Citizens) and Adriaan Dönszelmann (Managing Director of the Van Gogh Museum). With this programme, the museum makes it possible for older people to practice and experience art, together with others.
