Toyism is a worldwide art movement that was founded in 1992 in the province of Drenthe. The artists, masked and mysterious, are responsible for creating many artworks all over the world. From Peru to the Netherlands and from Iceland to China you can find their bright, colourful and narrative work. But many toyism artworks can also be found in Drenthe, like one of the biggest artworks of the Netherlands. This enormous artwork, called The Dot, is 22 metres high and can be found in the town of Emmen. Did you know you can even climb this artwork to rise above the treetops and get a wonderful view over the town? Or you can travel along the historical route of the Dutch TT to see the toyism sculptures and learn about the Moto GP heroes of the present and the past. And don’t forget the Dreams for Breakfast art hotel. Here you can spend the night sleeping in an artwork, the lights never go out in the Dance of Love room! Toyism has its studio and gallery in the town of Eelde, which is open for visitors. It is possible to book workshops or tours to visit their public artworks with a guide.
