The municipality of Arnhem has plans to mutilate Peter Struycken's Blue Waves (1977), the largest outdoor environment in the Netherlands. Originally designed as an outdoor parking area, Blue Waves consists of an undulating pattern of white and blue paving stones beneath a bridge crossing the Rhine in Arnhem. The municipality intends to turn the coloured paved structure under the flyovers into a green area, while leaving the undulation and the fountain intact. Peter Struycken (1939) is one of the most versatile artists of the Netherlands and well-known, among other things, pioneering role in digital art. Sign the petition to safe this exceptional artwork.
