I proud myself in having one of the largest Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam collections available for sale on the internte and i just added a extremely scarce item i want to share with you. I always was under the impression that from the mid Seventies the larger museums in the Netherlands started their educational programs to attract the young and school pupils to the museums.
I was wrong….
Recently i discovered in one of the 1960 catalogues a folder which was added which shows that the Stedelijk Musdeum had its own educational program in 1960. The 6 page folder, probably designed by Willem Sandberg shows an event specially organized for the very young to come to the museum and have fun. An “art” party for the young organized by the STEDELIJK in which childeren of all ages were entertained and encouraged to practisize their own art. A great and important collectable item available at www.ftn-books.com
