Richard Long – Save the Wood Circle, Van Abbemuseum III

The 'crowdfunding' initiative which was started to raise money to save this work by Richard Long for the collection of the Van Abbemuseum has ended with success. A total of 30.000 euro which was needed to complete the amount necessary for buying the work, was donated by 119 persons. The work, which was on loan for 30 years at the Van Abbemuseum is part of the exhibition Vanuit Hier – Out of Here at the museum until 8 January 2012
