Sculpture Club

For the love of sculpture

The Sculpture Club was founded in 2008 by a group of art lovers, who had a special interest in sculpture and wanted to support the museum. The Sculpture Club has since then grown into a group with more than 70 active members, who meet each other several times a year for a quality-oriented program.

Among many other activities the group organizes meets & greet swith special artists who explain their work. But there are also viewings of private collections and workshops. Around new exhibitions the club organizes enriching and informational evenings in the museum, concluded with a snack and a drink in an informal setting. Furthermore, a special lease auction is held every two years, which enables members to borrow works from the museum. In 2018 the Sculpture Club celebrated its second Lustrum during the spectacular Midsummer Night Festival, held on 21 June.

Sculpture Club Private Membership

The annual contribution of the Sculpture Club is set at € 1,000 (two people). Museum Beelden aan Zee has an ANBI status, which means that you, as a donor, can deduct your donation from the income tax. Your membership must then be recorded for a period of five years by means of a periodic payment. The membership offers many advantages, such as:

  • Free admission to the museum, also for surcharges at major exhibitions
  • Invitations for official openings in the Great Hall
  • Four events per year, such as studio visits to artists, artist talks, previews and guided tours
  • A special year dinner or party in the museum
  • The BAZ Magazine and the digital newsletter
  • Sculpture Club Business Membership
  • The annual contribution of a Business Friendship is fixed at € 2.500, - and applies to four people.

Museum Beelden aan Zee is a private museum that receives no substantial government subsidies. What makes the museum so special is that it is led by a small professional staff, which receives indispensable support from more than 150 highly-motivated Partners (volunteers) trained by the museum. That is why the Sculpture Club grants financial support (generated by the proceeds from the membership and the biennial loan auction) for the realization of an ambitious and audience-friendly exhibition, the expansion and maintenance of the permanent collection, the support of educational projects, as well as support for the Sculpture Institute, the scientific department affiliated with the museum.
