Holland America Line announced it is developing a unique and special art experience on board its ships and on shore during cruises. Launching this summer through partner ArtLink, the world’s leading pioneer of the international emerging art scene, the new program will deliver a unique art experience throughout the fleet where guests will have the opportunity to participate in a number of interactive art events; to delve deeper into the cultures they visit by being introduced to a region’s unique art and craftwork; and to take home a genuine memento of their experience. The program will be centered in an on-board gallery space exhibiting works by emerging artists curated from the destinations visited by the ships.
During the launch period the galleries will feature works by a select group of emerging international artists. The general collection will gradually be replaced by changing exhibitions curated to reflect the regions of the world as the ships sail the globe. An ever-changing selection of photographs, sculptures, crafts, paintings and drawings will ensure that the collections remain fresh and relevant, revealing stories as they are uniquely portrayed by artists of the destinations visited. The works showcased in ArtLink galleries will be offered exclusively to Holland America Line guests.
Future plans with the ArtLink partnership include an onboard residency program where guests will have the opportunity to attend live demonstrations and hands-on workshops with the visiting artists and curators, as well as the development of art-themed EXC Tours (shore excursions) that visit emerging artists in their workshops and galleries ashore.
