Art Policy

Art Policy

In the late 1980s, UMC Utrecht started collecting art. Since then, the hospital has collected innovative, contemporary art by artists living and/or working in the Netherlands. Works of art are purchased from leading artists at the top of the Dutch art field and from promising young talent.

With the art collection, the hospital aims to provide a picture of the developments within contemporary art in the Netherlands. This is one of the original objectives of the art policy. By now the collection comprises approximately 2,100 works that can be found in the public areas of the University Medical Center Utrecht, the Wilhelmina Children's Hospital (WKZ) and the Hijmans van den Bergh building. 

UMC Utrecht also gives artists site-specific commissions, which are subject to the same selection criteria. The art collection is freely accessible (The Hijmans van den Bergh building is closed on weekends).

Exhibition Policy

Department of Art Affairs (afdeling Kunstzaken) does not organize temporary art exhibitions at UMC Utrecht.
