Glas uit de collectie Dirk Schrijvers
16 May - 22 June
Design Museum Gent, Jan Breydelstraat 5, Belgium

Dirk Schrijvers is a passionate collector of glass objects. For over 10 years, he has entrusted the Design museum Gent with the most recent additions to his collection. The museum had already organized an exhibition of his wonderful collections eight years ago. They have in the meantime been so richly expanded so as to justify bringing them out for another run. His glass collection is added to on the basis of items which move him. To him, glass has a magic appeal. Dirk Schrijvers does not collect arbitrarily.

The exhibitions runs up to 22 june 2008 inclusive and can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday, between 10 a.m. and
6 p.m. Closed on Mondays.
