Make It Happen – Interactive street art

We all have favourite spots that provide us with a perfect photo opportunity. Like the text ‘Greetings to you’ by Niels Post, placed half way at the iconic Erasmusbridge (facing Noordereiland). It’s witty and I really like to make memories here.

Make It Happen is the motto of our city.
To put this motto more to life, seven artists will create interactive street art in the Rotterdam city centre. We are all invited to contribute to Make It Happen, by taking pictures while interacting with the art piece and share these pictures online using #makeithappen.

The first Make It Happen city art pieces is by a Belgium artist #Smates – Bart Smeets. The mural of a ship balancing on a tidal wave is on the East wall at Boompjes 123. When taking a picture, make sure to find the right position on the quay, so it looks as if the ship comes out of the wall. 

The second art piece is a mural by Rotterdam artist Daan Botlek and is my favourite. He created a stack of figures that are covering the full height of a building at the corner of the Schiedamse Vest and the Schilderstraat. Daan created steps, so you can climb the wall and become part of this art piece. It’s so much fun taking pictures here with friends or just see how watch people interact.

The third sticker-mural is by Calvin Sprague on Annabel’s wall in Delftsestraat 13. You can either choose to sit or ride a bike here.
