Overview
During the short days and long dark nights in Winter, Amsterdam becomes a place of Magic and Wonder. About 20 Light Art Works will be shown in and around the city’s Canals. A warm glass of gluhwein in your hands, the sound of water lapping softly against the sides of the boat as we drift beneath Amsterdam’s iconic bridges, Magical Artworks and past its magnificent 17th-century canal houses. On board this amazingly comfortable and quiet electric boat, you can go up close and even through these pieces!. We’ll discuss the artist’s inspiration, what moves them, and what they wanted to express through their work. We’ll share ideas, insights and opinions and hopefully we’ll all leave more inspired, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about art and what it can offer us. We also visit some of the main highlights that Amsterdam offers in the Evening. Like the Seven bridges, The Unesco world heritage Canal gordel and some of the most beautiful scenes at night.
