Vorwerk’s three-year sponsorship, which began in 2023, will provide the museum with 150,000 euros ($164,000) to pursue this new approach and ensure future viability.
– As a company with deep roots in the city and close ties to the Wuppertal region for over 140 years, we are delighted to be marking our anniversary by supporting the important work of Wuppertal’s Von der Heydt Museum. Culture is an integral part of our identity. That’s why we are passionate about participating in cultural projects. As a corporate group, we also count in a way as a ‘citizen’ of the city, and as such, we want to contribute to the great civic movement that has always supported the Von der Heydt Museum – said Dr. Thomas Stoffmehl, a member of the Vorwerk Group executive board.
