“In love with Delft”
Strangely enough, I never realized that besides all the monuments, there is much more to admire. Delft is literally full of art treasures. But because of all the other splendor you quickly look past them. In any case, I discovered them pretty late, partly thanks to the online databases of Kunstwacht and the Delft photographers René and Peter van der Krogt. I have translated their diligent work into a walking route that opens up public art to everyone, Delftenaars and visitors, young and old. With this initiative I want to contribute and give something back to my beloved city, as a thank you for sixty years of living. In this corona time, with the obligatory one and a half meter distance, the art walk offers a unique opportunity to get to know Delft from an unexpected side. New art routes, in the suburbs, are in development. To be continued!’
