MUSEUM VALKENBURG MEMORIAL 50TH DAY OF JAN HANLO
On June 16, 2019, it is fifty years since the poet Jan Hanlo died. Museum Valkenburg wants to commemorate Jan Hanlo with a beautiful exhibition of his work in the Jacques Vonkzaal. In recent months, a working group of Jan Hanlo connoisseurs – poet and writer Wiel Kusters, Ser J.L. Prop and Jan Schurgers – prepared the exhibition with representatives from the museum. Pieces from Hanlo’s legacy in the Literature Museum in The Hague have been scanned and selected. Not only his literary work is represented, but there will also be watercolors and children’s drawings by Jan Hanlo. Prof. Wiel Kusters calls the exhibition a worthy homage to a great and originally poet.
The exhibition at Museum Valkenburg consists of documents, photos and texts from the collection of the Literature Museum in The Hague and from private collections. The exhibition will be opened on Sunday, June 16 at 3 pm by prof.dr. Wiel Kusters and lasts until August 25, 2019.
The usual means of access apply to the entrance.
