Open Garden Days
Amsterdam – 14, 15 and 16 June
ING Bank's garden at Herengracht 580 in Amsterdam will be open to the public during Open Garden Days on 14, 15 and 16 June. In addition, thirty other gardens along Amsterdam's canals will be open to visitors as well.
Herengracht 580 in Amsterdam has been home to ING Bank since 1922. The Bank will again be opening its garden to the public during this year's Open Garden Days.
Artist Marjolijn Mandersloot will be showing her latest sculptures in the garden round the extraordinary 150-year-old swamp oak. Combining animal and human forms, her sculptures demonstrate a surprising use of materials. Things are not what they seem: the endearing figures are made of robust bronze and polished aluminium. Sculptures by the same artist can be found in the ING Collection.
The gardens are open all three days from 10am to 5pm. Advance booking is not necessary. Tickets can be purchased at one of the starting points on any day of the event. For further information: www.opentuinendagen.nl. For further information about Marjolijn Mandersloot: www.marjolijnmandersloot.nl
