The KIK-IRPA receives the Kunstwijk Award 2014

On Wednesday 25 June 2014 the organisation vzw Kunstwijk/asbl Quartier des Arts presented their biannual award to the King Baudouin Foundation and to the KIK-IRPA. The award was granted for the restoration of the statue Caritas by Jan van Delen. Our Acting General Director Christina Ceulemans received the diploma from the hands of HM King Albert II, to whom a reception was offered on the occasion of his birthday. Judy De Roy , who restored the sculpture, was also present. The KIK-IRPA is delighted with this award that valorizes the team work of the different units involved in the project (Stone sculpture studio, laboratories, photographic service...).  

The restoration also inspired the project Study of the sculpted oeuvre of Jan van Delen (†1703), which shall be carried out by an intern between October 2014 and March 2015 with the financial support of the InBev-Baillet Latour fund.
