Together with Curaçao youth and the Fundashon di Artista, Herman van Bergen is building the Cathedral of Thorns; a unique and durable work of art that creates awareness for both the destructive and creative sides of humanity. A tribute to nature, to the native Arawak that originally inhabited Curaçao, and to the people of West Africa who were shipped to Curaçao as slaves. A labyrinth for current and future generations of residents and tourists. The Cathedral will be opened on February 2nd, 2020: 0202 2020.

Tickets for the Grand Opening are not available.
