Various cities and regions throughout the Netherlands, including Utrecht and Amersfoort, will host parts of the Year's programme. De Stijl continues to have a tremendous influence on art, design, architecture and implements. Four of the most important De Stijl artists ‒ Piet Mondrian, Gerrit Rietveld, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck ‒ were born in Utrecht or Amersfoort. Consequently, Utrecht & Amersfoort are showcasing these artists' heritage.Businesses, shops and numerous organisations, too, will embrace the theme year with dozens of activities.
