White Wall Project V (Waterweg)

The 800 meters installation located at Prinses Beatrixpark Schiedam (27th May until 24th June 2018) arrived to its end. During this 4 weeks more than 1000 people coming from Maassluis, Vlaardingen and Schiedam have created the biggest painting ever in The Netherlands, from White Wall Project we want to thank all of them for its participation, enthusiasm and collaboration every day!

Last 23rd of June, a jury made up of professionals from the art world, Jannie Hommes, Hommes Gallery & Chairman White Wall Foundation, Judith Makkenze, visual artist & secretary of White Wall Foundation and Marco Douma, Visual Artist, special guest to be part of the jury, decided and choose 42 parts of the 800 meters canvas that are going to be part of our 3 exhibitions. Diversity, effort, quality, dedication and collaboration were the main values to be judged.

We think that with this selection the general vision and the story told in Beatrixpark Schiedam during the 4 weeks is well represented, always remembering the artists not selected, thanks to them this great adventure was possible.

Now is time to celebrate all this beautiful experience together again, we have 3 exhibitions coming soon, each exhibition different, without repeated paintings and with surprises in every one of them! You’re very welcome!
