Her Majesty the Queen opens on Saturday 9the of May 2009 the first international art manifestation in the public space of Amsterdam. Open Source Amsterdam is the title of this unique event, which takes place in the Bijlmermeer. (The Bijlmermeer is the Caribbean and African part of Amsterdam.) From May 9 to July 11 there are 16 works by 15 artists from both foreign and domestically, internationally established and upcoming talent, a three kilometers long between art route between the Bijlmer-ArenA railway station and metro station Kraaiennest.
Editors note: The Bijlmer is considered the most multicultural black neighborhood of the Netherlands, with nationalities from the Caribbean, Africa and other part of the world. So if you are visiting Amsterdam you can enjoy international art and a black atmosphere.
