10 things I learned at the TIC borrel on February 17th at De Pont:
  1. Modern Art museum De Pont is located in a former wool spinning factory and the large light spaces and intimate “wool rooms” offer a good setting in which to view modern art.
  2. The museum is named for the businessman Jan de Pont (1915-1987) who left a large sum of money after his death for the creation of a museum of modern art. The museum receives no government subsidy pont-3and operates solely on de Pont’s legacy.
  3. The museum was recently enlarged, adding new exhibition areas and a larger café/restaurant with a lovely terrace area outside.
  4. On one end of the new restaurant area, there is a lovely glassed in area pont-2which looks out over the garden – complete with crackling fireplace – where guests can relax on a comfortable couch and chairs to enjoy a drink and snacks.
  5. The “Flam Keuchen” on the menu (kind of thin crusted pizza) makes a lovely snack if cut in smaller pieces.
  6. The TIC members who attended didn’t have any trouble finishing the bottle of wine we ordered.pont-4
  7. My favorite piece of art was the giant stainless steel piece made by Anish Kapoor – I was upside down over it!
  8. For some of the other pieces, I need a little “help” to appreciate them, and had to remind myself that even though I might think I could make them…I probably could not!pont-5
  9. No matter where the TIC Borrel is – it is always fun!
  10. Starting in March 2017, the museum will be open every Thursday from 17.00-20.00 and admission will be free!
