Collection / Sponsorship
Sponsorship // In 2009, in cooperation with the Förderkreis and under the patronage of Governing Mayor Dr. Peter Kurz, an unusual project was launched: BildPaten (Picture Sponsors) – private donors were sought in order to implement urgent restorations of significant works of the collection. The initial response was extremely positive and the commitment of the residents of Mannheim to the Städtische Kunstsammlung more than encouraging. Until today, 17 paintings, 5 sculptures and 11 graphics have found a sponsor, including a key work of Expressionism, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s “Gelbes Engelufer”. But we are still looking for further sponsors to help us preserve the valuable collection. If you have questions or would like further information please contact Dr. Inge Herold: 0621 2936437.
