Located at twenty minutes at southern of Brussels, in the lovely Solvay Park, the farm of the La Hulpe Castle houses the Folon Foundation. Designed and created by Jean-Michel Folon, it represents more than 40 years of creative work in a lively and original scenography, designed by the Belgian artist himself.

He opens his life book for us .. Through the chapters the visitor discovers the multiple facets of his art and his world; an exhibition of more than 500 works with watercolours, silkscreen-prints, etchings, posters, objects, stained glass, sculptures, Music, movies, optical effects, animated an interactive tour: one penetrates into an giant book, enters into the head of the blue man, loses oneself in mirror games, finds endless posters, discovers the secrets of the artist's studio and ends the tour under a myriad of stars.

After your visit dawdle through the 220 hectares of the green Solvay estate, with its varied landscapes enriched by quite lakes and amazing flora and fauna. The Folon Foundation also invites you to organise your conferences, seminars, receptions and other meetings in an area with real charm on the first floor of the farm. You can also make arrangements for evening events and visit the museum with experienced guides, in the language of your choice.

    Prenez l'Air | Journée festive à la Fondation Folon
    Prenez l'Air | Journée festive à la Fondation Folon

    La Fondation Folon vous convie à une journée toute en légèreté au cœur du Parc Solvay pour la 8e édition de leur journée festive sous la thématique de l'air. À La Hulpe, le 30 mai 2019.

    Tous les deux ans, le Jeudi de l'Ascension, la Ferme du Château de La Hulpe accueille l'événement Prenez l'Air. Cette édition va chercher son inspiration dans le thème de la Papeterie Poétique : créer des mobiles aériens ou une immense fresque participative, rêver devant un théâtre d’ombres, rencontrer un dessinateur-philosophe. C’est le papier sous toutes ses formes qui sera à l’honneur en cette belle journée familiale. 

    Une journée pas comme les autres

    À partir de 11h, les cerfs-volants animeront le ciel. Retrouvez également des ateliers de peinture et de montage de cerfs-volants ainsi que des démonstrations de cervolistes dont des combats de cerfs-volants. La journée se composera aussi d'animations musicales et de balades contées.

    En pratique

    • Dès 11h
    • Accessible pour tout le monde (tout âge)
    • Tarifs : Pass individuel 15 € / pass famille (2 adultes et 3 enfants) 30 €
    • Pas besoin de réservation

    Venez entre amis ou en famille admirer les démonstrations des cervolistes et participer aux différents ateliers proposés !
