Herenplaats Art Academy

Herenplaats has studio space for artists with an intellectual disability and provides support with the financial and commercial aspects of the profession. Some of the artists have been with Herenplaats since it founding in 1991. Familiar names are: Hein Dingemans (exhibition in museum Boijmans van Beuningen, 2001), Jaco Kranendonk (permanent exhibition in museum Charlotte Zander in Germany and permanent collection Stadshof), Laan Irodjojo (wall painting commissioned by CBK Rotterdam) and Paulus de Groot (permanent collection of M.A.D museum in Luik and outsider Art Museum, Baltimore U.S.A.). The artists often operate outside their studio, not only in exhibitions, but also in lectures, presentations and workshops. Furthermore they work on commissions by both private and corporate clients.
