Land Art Weekend
The Dutch province of Flevoland is home to a unique collection of land art. During the annual Land Art Weekend, we put the spotlight on the ten land art monuments of the polder. The next Land Art Weekend takes place 3 and 4 June 2023.
During the Land Art Weekend there will be a guide at work of land art who can enthusiastically tell you about the artwork and answer all your questions. In addition, we will organise performances and activities at various locations.
The Land Art Weekend takes place every year in the first weekend of June.

Is land art fun with/for children?
The nice thing about works of art in public spaces is that you can touch them. So come and feel for yourself.
- Together with their parents, children can do assignments at Land Art Flevoland. Using these children's assignments, compiled by Myrthe Mandemakers, children and parents are invited to look, discover and form their own opinions about the artwork. With doing assignments for young children (4+) and thinking assignments for older children (9+). You can pick up the children's assignments from the guides on site [only available in Dutch]
- At Riff, PD#18245 is a (kids') workshop Riff 'em yourself, organised by pilot museum M. Right next to the big artwork, you can make your own little 'riff'.
- And our colleagues at M. have developed a Land Art Family Tour (a webapp) along three works of land art, see also: https://jijbentm.art/events/familietour/
Is land art fun for dogs?
All artworks are in public spaces and accessible to everyone - including dogs. Pro-tips: Sea Level by Richard Serra in Zeewolde is a popular walking spot, and Exposure by Antony Gormley is also a great place for a dog to run. Not all Land Art Weekend programme sections are equally dog-friendly, if in doubt contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Is land art fun if you use a wheelchair or walker?
To our regret, not all artworks are equally accessible. What you can see depends a bit on your situation. Here we try to describe the circumstances as much as possible so you can make your own choices.
