Portrait of Rita Reys in the spotlight
Last Friday, more than 50 people took part in the Silent Walk on the Oude Binnenweg, where since 2013 there have been portraits of well-known deceased Rotterdam jazz musicians. The portrait of Rita Reys was made in 2017 by her cousin Wilbert Plijnaar. On the occasion of illuminating the portrait, we asked Wilbert to act as a special guest during the special Art Index Tour last Friday. The light-sensitive paint with the colors projected on it provide a splashing effect. As if a big party from days gone by is announced every night. Location: on the corner of Oude Binnenweg, opposite café Sijf. The lighting design is by Atelier LEK. Thanks to R'JAM and café Sijf.
