Over this year, the province of South-Holland will complete the renovation of the provincial house. The building is a conservation area and has been home to the State Hall, the Provincial Council, and the Provincial Executive for fifty years now. The renovation and redecoration, by OTH architects, focuses on sustainability and recycling.
The art collection, which consists of work by artists who live or work in the province, will expressly be given room in the building. The province wants to pass on heritage to the next generations and considers the art collection to be part of it. In recent years, the collection has been (preventively) conserved where necessary.
In the renovated building, highlights of the collection will be shared with visitors, relations, and employees. This concerns works that are connected to the original building of the Provincial house, such as rare tapestry by Lex Horn, a monumental sculpture by Sigurdur Gudmundsson and paintings by Bob Bonies and Peter Struycken, but also works that have been acquired in a later stage, for instance by Marcel van Eeden and Wout Berger.
