You might go to The Hague for shopping, to check out the palaces or visit the nearby beach. Not many people go to the city for art. “Shame,” says Vincent de Boer, advisor at Stroom Den Haag, the local institute responsible for art in public space. “It is a very important part of the city.” And a beautiful one. Take the ‘Beeldengalerij’ sculpture gallery. 40 sculptures placed on pedestals covering the two most important streets in The Hague: Marktstraat and Spui. “Every year we added two sculptures,” De Boer explains. “Now they’re all taken, but we’re not done. There’s a new one scheduled to be revealed in October. It’ll be spectacular.”
