At the Erfgoeddag (Heritage Day) (web site: www.erfgoeddag.be) on Sunday 17th April 2005, the Museum Herman De Cuyper has organised an exhibition about the current state of the sculptural heritage of Herman De Cuyper in our region.
At the end of World War II, the artist’s dwelling was hit by a V1 shell. Many of the early lyrical impressionist modelling work in plaster was destroyed. The museum still possesses a few saved fragments. A thematic exhibition about these ‘war victims’ and about the vulnerable sculptural patrimony of Herman De Cuyper’s in the Scheldeland area. Draft drawings and photographs of the current situation provide an insight into the problem of danger. The exhibit will be open till Friday 30th September 2005.
On Sunday 11th September 2005, on ‘Open Monuments Day’, the freshly designed Bicycle route Herman De Cuyper was inaugurated. It runs in the Scheldeland junctions map edited by the TPA. Participants left from the museum. The brochure is available
in the museum and in the tourist offices.
