Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a night at a museum? For the third edition of ‘Sleepover at…’, we are collaborating with Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam to create a night you will remember! The only thing you need to do is let us know what piece of art you would like to spend 24 hours with. The three most original submissions will win an overnight stay for two.
What to expect from Sleepover at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
On the 2nd of September, you will be able to spend the night in the courtyard of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The pop-up hotel To Many Places will take care of a sleepover in style, ensuring a comfortable night by letting you sleep inside one of their innovating design tents. Traveling diner concept Pique_Unique will organize a private dinner, followed by an exclusive evening tour through the museum. This way, winners can enjoy their favorites in all privacy.
How to participate?
You can participate by posting a photo of your favorite Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen art piece on Instagram or Facebook. Make sure to tag the photo with #hutspotxboijmans, @hutspot and @boijmans so that we can find your entry! Too cool for social media? You can also send a physical entry to: afdeling Marketing en Communicatie, Sleepover at Boijmans, Postbus 2277, 3000 CG Rotterdam. Say hi to the pigeon post!
About the exhibition
The existing collection at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen consists of more than 500 works from 1945 and onwards. Carel Blotkamp has found a complete new way of presenting the collection, unconsciously motivating visitors to look longer at an individual piece of art. And what better way to slow-watch the collection than to stay for the night?
Winners will be announced on the 18th of August. Competition entry closes on the 11th of August.
