Thanks to a broadly supported motion, on the advice of the CBK Rotterdam, the city council approved the restoration of a number of leading works of art in the public space of Rotterdam.
So the Apples van Kees Franse (Heemraadssingel), 1989 from John Körmeling (Hillekopflat) and Two Turning Vertical Rectangles from George Rickey (Binnenwegplein). Also the Steel column on the North Island is being restored and given the nearby Wilhelmina fountain a new water management. Residents of the Noordereiland, united in the Montmartre foundation on the Maas, endeavor to give a new impulse through crowdfunding in the immediate vicinity of the Stieltjeszuil. The restorations take place under the auspices of the CBK and the Public Works department and must be completed in 2014.
