De Pont is housed in a former woolspinning mill that has been transformed by Benthem Crouwel Architects. The vast, light main area of the monumental old factory and the intimate ‘wool-storage rooms' constitute an environment for the many works of art that De Pont has collected since its opening to the public in September 1992. The acquisition policy aims at accentuating not the breadth but rather the depth of collecting, for which roughly three large exhibitions per year serve as the breeding ground. The additional program of smaller solo presentations in the project space is not directly related to the collection. (text: website museum)
