AMERICAN ART IN THE NETHERLANDS
The Kunsthal Rotterdam will bring the American art movement hyperrealism to the Netherlands. This exciting and unique exhibition will show 50 years of hyperrealism in February until June 2017. It would be great if the Kunsthal could create a catalogue to increase the understanding of this art movement, and especially to explain the relation between American and European painters within this movement.
hyperrealism
To make this catalogue possible the Kunsthal Rotterdam has created a fundraiser on the website King Baudouin Foundation United States (KBFUS) and wishes that all of their American friends would like to contribute to this very important initiative to increase the understanding about hyperrealism and this American-European relation in the artworld.

THE DUTCH REACH
As those who ride bikes know, dooring, where someone opens a car door into a bicyclist riding by, is a serious issue that can lead to injury. In the Netherlands, people who drive are also well aware of dooring and have developed a simple technique that can help prevent this. With the Dutch Reach, drivers use their right hand to open a car door, forcing them to look behind them for approaching bicyclists before opening the car door. Outside Magazine recently released a
