Your membership provides vital support to the Stedelijk Museum’s special projects. Each year, we announce the acquisition of a work of art purchased for our collection thanks to the support of Young Stedelijk. Thanks in part to the annual contributions of Young Stedelijk members, the Stedelijk was able to purchase the works The Fans of Raw Color and Untitled (De Appel 1) & Untitled (De Appel 3) by Steffani Jemison in 2020. Important purchases for the Stedelijk collection!
