For the love of sculpture
The Sculpture Club was founded in 2008 by a group of art lovers with a special interest in sculpture who wanted to support the museum. The Sculpture Club has since grown to include more than 70 active members who come together several times a year for quality-oriented programs.
These programs and activities have in the past included meets & greets with special artists to discuss their work as well as viewings of private collections and a variety of workshops. In tandem with new exhibitions, the Club hosts informational evenings in the museum followed by an informal snack and a drink. Furthermore, a special lease auction which enables members to borrow works from the museum is held every two years. In 2018 the Sculpture Club celebrated its second Lustrum during the spectacular Midsummer Night Festival, held on the 21st of June.
The annual contribution of the Sculpture Club is set at € 1,000 (two people). Museum Beelden aan Zee has an ANBI status, which means that you, as a donor, can deduct your donation from the income tax. Your membership must then be recorded for a period of five years by means of a periodic payment. The membership offers many advantages, such as:
Museum Beelden aan Zee is a private museum that receives no substantial government subsidies. What makes the museum so special is that it is led by a small professional staff, which receives indispensable support from more than 150 highly-motivated Partners (volunteers) trained by the museum. The Sculpture Club provides financial support, generated both by the proceeds from the membership and the biennial loan auction, for the realization of ambitious and audience-friendly exhibitions, the expansion and maintenance of the permanent collection and the support of educational projects, as well as support for the Sculpture Institute, the research department affiliated with the museum.
