Beaufort Sculpture Park expands
This year's seventh edition has again strongly positioned the Coast as a culture-tourism destination.
Since May 27, about one million visitors have visited one or more works of art of the Triennial at sea. Due to the Covid crisis Beaufort 21 ran over a shorter period and fewer foreign visitors were recorded. The somewhat mediocre summer also resulted in fewer day visitors.
Visitors and coastal municipalities also satisfied
The tourist offices of the 10 coastal municipality indicated that the many visitors they received for Beaufort were all very enthusiastic and satisfied. This is also confirmed in an online survey by Westtoer: visitors give the Triennial a high satisfaction score and half of them indicate that they will definitely recommend Beaufort 21 to friends and family.
Nine works of art complement Beaufort Sculpture Park
Nine works of art of this edition were purchased by the coastal municipalities, and thus the Beaufort sculpture park expands considerably after this edition. It concerns the following works of art:
- Laure Prouvost in De Panne
- Michael Rakowitz in De Panne
- Els Dietvorst in Koksijde
- Goshka Macuga in Nieuwpoort
- Oliver Laric in Westende
- Rosa Barba in Ostend
- Nicolás Lamas in Bredene
- Maen Florin in De Haan
- Marguerite Humeau in Blankenberge
- Jeremy Deller in Knokke-Heist
The Beaufort Sculpture Park now comprises 40 artworks. This way, the sculpture park will be extended to a wide trail along the entire coastline.
