In a time where everyone has to stay at home as much as possible, we can explore cultural expressions virtually.
In the article ‘So You can’t go to the museum. But you can bring the Museum to your home’ we read:
“Research has shown that viewing art can reduce stress and anxiety, increase motivation and serve as a mood booster. One study found that a lunchtime visit to an art gallery significantly reduced stress among visitors. Museums also play a crucial role in creating a more empathic world. They preserve the past, remind us of our place in the present and give us hope for the future.”
To start with:
The Horta Museum in Brussels launched the “hort @ home” and the “hort @ home for kids.”
The idea is to bring a bit of the museum to your home through several weekly digital meetings.
Appointments are scheduled on Mondays and Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.
The “hort @ home for kids”, a Monday on two at 2 p.m., post a video as a tutorial for children on its Facebook page.
And for those who want even more … the museum reserves several new publications on weekends!
In this museum the Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta was at home. It displays all the tributes of this style, a basic interpretation that comes from nature. It was built in 1898. The museum has the largest library devoted to exclusively Art Nouveau, with more than 5000 volumes as well as Horta’s personal archives.
