In honour of the 100th anniversary of the art movement known as ‘De Stijl’, NBTC Holland Marketing has declared 2017 the ‘Mondrian to Dutch Design’ Year. Various cities and regions throughout the Netherlands, including Utrecht and Amersfoort, will host parts of the Year's programme. De Stijl continues to have a tremendous influence on art, design, architecture and implements. Four of the most important De Stijl artists ‒ Piet Mondrian, Gerrit Rietveld, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck ‒ were born in Utrecht or Amersfoort. Consequently, Utrecht & Amersfoort are showcasing these artists' heritage. In 2017, influential work by artists including Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Mondrian will be uniquely spotlighted in new exhibitions and events. Although Rietveld and Mondrian never met back in the day, this will be achieved symbolically in 2017 during the Mondrian to Dutch Design theme year. Businesses, shops and numerous organisations, too, will embrace the theme year with dozens of activities.
