Drawing in Talent


Maastricht University (UM) pays close attention to the setting in which its staff and students work and study. The attraction of this environment goes up, of course, when it also breathes an artistic sense of quality. This may be expressed in the furnishings of UM buildings or the presence of artistic objects. The Art and Heritage Commission (KEC) is in charge of this element of university life. KEC makes sure, for instance, that the special architecture of the centuries-old inner city buildings or the radically new buildings in Randwyck is highlighted; it enhances the work and study environment in university buildings with artworks; it puts special collections on display; and every six months it draws attention to an interesting artistic subject by organizing a new exhibition in the Bestuursgebouw at Minderbroedersberg 4-6.
