The ss Rotterdam takes part in the Red Alert campaign, to make clear that event locations suffer under the deminishing number of bookings as a consequence of the Covid-19 measures. Event organizers should visit event locations to experience the range of posibilities. Because of the campaign the ss Rotterdam coloured red. Picture made by Chris Vercammen.
An extensive survey is being done on the mural Aegean Sea in the Grand Ballroom on the ss Rotterdam. The artist Cuno van den Steene created the mural in 1959. After a restoration in 2007 several damages were caused by the use of the Grand Ballroom through the years. In January 2020 students of the trainings-course Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage of the University of Amsterdam concluded after a quick survey that further investigation was badly needed. Our foundation took the initiative to start a thorough investigation by Willianne van der Sar of Color & Conservation . Together with students of the university she prepares a report that must make clear what has to be done to restorate the mural. The survey is possible thanks to a donation of Stichting De Ziekenfondsbode.
