About the collection and Art route Hoogvliet

Did you know Le Tamanoir (1965) by the world famous Alexander Calder has been in Hoogvliet for more than 55 years? And so this Rotterdam district has many more works of art by leading artists, including Jan Schoonhoven, Ek van Zanten, Dick Elffers, Gust Romijn, Bob Bonies, Chris Elffers and Ian Pieters. Two works of art were recently added: Gora Viva (1979) by Jose Esteban Prieto and the untitled sculpture (1965) by Piet van Stuivenberg.
BKOR and SIR have collected this special collection of sixteen works of art in the online Art route Hoogvliet, which takes you – on foot or by bicycle – through residential areas, to the shopping district, up and down the dike and along the river; art is everywhere.
