Late Night Thurs­day

Late Night Thurs­day, on ev­ery first Thurs­day of the month, is one of the fa­vorite event days at the Mu­se­um Lud­wig. With vis­i­tor-friend­ly ex­tend­ed hours un­til 10 p.m. and a di­verse range of pro­gram of­fer­ings, such as con­certs, plays, or tours through the inim­itable col­lec­tion of the mu­se­um, this event play­ful­ly com­bines dif­fer­ent dis­ci­p­lines of art, dis­pels in­hi­bi­tions, and awak­ens vis­i­tors’ cu­rios­i­ty to learn more.

We would like to thank the Spar­da-Bank West’s Foun­da­tion for Art, Cul­ture, and So­cial Mat­ters for sup­port­ing the pop­u­lar spe­cial even­ing Late Night Thurs­day.

“Strengthen­ing the di­verse cul­tu­r­al land­s­cape in North Rhine-West­phalia is im­por­tant to the Spar­da-Bank West’s foun­da­tion. The Mu­se­um Lud­wig’s ‘Late Night Thurs­day,’ which we spon­sor, is for us a per­fect ex­am­ple of how of­fer­ing exc­it­ing events dur­ing ex­tend­ed busi­ness hours and at a re­duced ad­mis­sion price can suc­cess­ful­ly bring peo­ple clos­er to art and cul­ture. A vis­it is al­ways worth­while.”

The Mu­se­um Lud­wig is a live­ly place, where ed­u­ca­tio­n­al pro­grams of­fer knowl­edge and cre­a­tiv­i­ty to the most di­verse tar­get au­di­ences.

As a pro­ject part­n­er for spe­cial pro­jects in the area of art ed­u­ca­tion for chil­dren, ado­les­cents, and adults you have vari­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties for en­gage­ment.

In the area of re­search as well, such as in the conser­va­tion of art­works, there are ad­di­tio­n­al pro­jects that can on­ly be re­al­ized with the help of part­n­er­ships.

The ART LAB: Our space for you and your fam­i­ly

In Fe­bruary 2015 we opened up our ART LAB in the Mu­se­um Lud­wig. It is a room ad­dressed es­pe­cial­ly to fam­i­lies and chil­dren, and in which you can ex­per­i­ment, re­lax, and play to­gether. Run­n­ing un­der the head­line "Ex­press your­self!", it is con­nect­ed to the per­ma­nent col­lec­tion, es­pe­cial­ly to the Ex­pres­sion­ist art, and in­vites ev­ery­one to conduct their own ex­per­i­ments. Al­low your­self to be­come in­spired by the works you see in the ex­hi­bi­tion next door!

We were able to re­al­ize the ART LAB thanks to the great sup­port of GAG Im­mo­bilien AG. The co­op­er­a­tion which is termed for 3 years al­lows us to re­struc­ture the room once a year, each time ded­i­cat­ed to a dif­fer­ent fo­cus of the mu­se­um's col­lec­tion, which in­cludes all ma­jor po­si­tions of the arts of the 20th and 21st cen­turies.

Many won­der­ful ideas are wait­ing to be re­al­ized! If you’re in­ter­est­ed in sup­port­ing a par­tic­u­lar pro­ject at the Mu­se­um Lud­wig, please con­tact Lisa Schade (née Nadig) by e-mail: lisa.schademu­se­um-lud­ or by tele­phone: 0221 221 24581.
