Dear Het Depot visitor,
After careful consideration in light of the coronavirus we have decided to close Sculpture Gallery Het Depot for the public until further notice. This means it is impossible to visit our exhibitions at this time. Unfortunately this also means that any openings will have to be postponed until a later time.
From Monday June 15 onwards, Arboretum De Dreijen will be open for visitors again. The arboretum will be open Mondays through Sundays, from 10AM to 5PM. The sculpture gallery will remain closed until further notice.
Should you have any questions, you may reach us by email.
We count on your understanding and hope to meet you again soon.
Sculpture Gallery Het Depot is a museological stage for contemporary sculpture and puts the artist’s development opportunities center stage: by people, for people. The collection of sculptures consists of torsos and fragments of the human body.
Sculpture Gallery Het Depot has three locations, connected by Arboretum De Dreijen. Villa Hinkeloord features a permanent exhibition of work by Eja Siepman van den Berg and temporary exhibitions in the downstairs space. Arboretum Hinkeloord is also part of this location of Het Depot. The main building showcases exhibitions of work by contemporary sculptors and an exhibition on both arboreta.
The Het Depot Foundation exploits the following activities:
- Sculpture Gallery Het Depot: a permanent exhibition of contemporary sculpture featuring torsos and fragments of torsos
