experienced, we have set a goal of creating na event for the Aruban youth, the local
community and tourists.
“Ode aan Rembrandt” is an event that will combine film, music and theatrical performance.
The goal is to develop a one of a kind, educational and entertaining environment where the
youth and the community can come and enjoy the legend of Rembrandt with performances
from local artists.
Inspired by the legendary Dutch Artist Rembrandt van Rijn who lived in a special historic
time in the seventeenth century better known as the Dutch Golden Age. The Center has
decided to celebrate Rembrandt because in 2019 it will be 350 years of his passing. We at the
Center would like to honor the Titan of the Dutch Golden Age.

The event will not only bring motivation to be active in the arts, but it will also help the
Aruban society to better understand Arts and Culture. In the global era of today’s society
