Event Description

Remember Piet Mondrian and his distinctive colorful squares? Or Gerrit Rietveld and his famous Red and Blue Chair? Their work was part of a greater art movement called De Stijl (“The Style”). It's 100th anniversary was celebrated widely in the Netherlands in 2017...and is soon to be celebrated in Portland in October 2018.  We have an exiting program that kicks off with: 

  • A highly informative lecture by Utrecht art historian Mathijs Meinderts at the Portland art Museum where you can learn about De Stijl and the role Utrecht played in it. This will be followed by a reception, where you can mingle with the Utrecht artists.
  • We are so happy to be able to bring the Dutch actress Audrey  Bolder to Portland.  She will perform an amazing one-woman show that will transport you back to the early nineteen hundreds. Three shows are in English (to share this cultural treasure with the wider Portland audience) and then Sunday afternoon October 21, there will be a matinee in Dutch! 
  • Then we are creating a unique symbol of the official friendship city relationship  between Portland and Utrecht - “The Utrecht Mural”, a mural designed by Utrecht artist Menno Anker in Portland’s Hollywood district.
