In Ede, you will find plenty of art in public spaces: during a walk through the village centres, in nature, at museums, but also in unexpected places. Let yourself be surprised!
150 Works of Art in the streets
In Ede and the surrounding villages, art is literally in the streets. The many squares, roundabouts, public gardens, school playgrounds and streets are home to sculptures, paintings and works of art. You will also find many war memorials and commemorative monuments. On this website you will find nearly all 150 works of art. The HvA Cultuurfonds Ede is continuing to work on the city sculpture garden, so take a good look around and you might just discover a new work of art.
Tip: the guides from Recreation Veluwe-Valley will be happy to take you on a sculpture tour of Ede.
Art in Het Nationale Park De Hoge Veluwe
In the heart of het Nationale Park De Hoge Veluwe [The Hoge Veluwe National Park], you will find many special works of art. There is a purpose to all of the buildings and art that have been situated in the Park. Helene Kröller-Müller wanted to create something for the community: buildings, sculptures and art that are in harmony with their surroundings. This resulted in numerous objects throughout the Park. The majority are listed as monuments.
Sculpture garden at Kröller-Müller Museum
The Kröller-Müller Museum has one of the largest sculpture gardens in Europe. Spread over the 25 hectare garden are more than 160 modern sculptures by iconic artists. These include works by Aristide Maillol and Jean Dubuffet to Marta Pan and Pierre Huyghe. Two pavilions by Aldo van Eyck and Gerrit Rietveld adorn the garden: gems from the 1960s that have been given a new place here. The garden is open all year round and breathes a new atmosphere every season.
