Friends’ Jubilee

The Society of Friends of the Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem celebrated its silver jubilee. As of 16 September 2012 this festive occasion was marked by exhibitions, an auction and a special publication: a limited edition portfolio with works by ten well-known photographers.
Since 1987 the Friends have been supporting the acquisitions of old masters and contemporary art, restorations, lectures and publications. With its 1800 members the society is one of the largest and most active societies of museumfriends in the Netherlands and a welcome asset in these dire times of cuts to the cultural sector!
