Welcome to Landhuis Bloemhof
Landhuis Bloemhof is a cultural center dedicated to the memory of May Henriquez.
Contemporary visual artists are welcomed to exhibit their work in this historical mansion dating back to 1735.
And there is much more to explore on the seven acres of the estate, like the frozen in time sculpture studio of May Henriquez, the Ex Libris May-Max Library and our gift shop with unique souvenirs and art books.
On the premises, in the gardens, you can also visit the bath house nestled between shady trees, the Labyrinth/Cathedral of Thorns, created by Herman van Bergen and the open air sculpture studio of Hortence Brouwn.
Stroll through the park and indulge in a cultural experience surrounded by history, contemporary art and nature.

CIRCLES OF LIFE
Fundraising to support the Healthcare in Curaçao
We can proudly announce that we were able to transfer a first donation of almost Nafl 5.000,= to the Ronald McDonald House Foundation. Your reactions were awesome! We sold 54 circles plus two paintings that were donated by Andre Nagtegaal in support of the meal program for personnel and staff of the CMC, who are working day and night, beyond the call of duty caring for patients fighting Covid-19.
YOU helped make this possible! We are so grateful. Thank you, thank you and thank you!
And we are not done yet! There are still 50 cute and colorful circles waiting for you to give them a new home.
