11 Fountains, 11 world class artists
All the participating artists are from the top segment of the international art world. They hail from eleven different countries and were carefully chosen on the basis of their work as being ‘suited’ to the character of a particular city. They were asked to immerse themselves in the city’s history, taking into account the intended location, and to become acquainted with the local population. Not only did this process result in friendly contacts, but it also gave rise to extraordinary designs which together will form a not-to-be-missed destination for international cultural tourism.

11Fountains is one of the largest art projects of Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2018, Cultural Capital of Europe, and is a new addition to our cultural heritage. The project is being supported by the Province of Fryslân and the six municipalities involved.
