The Coba de Groot Foundation
Production and design of a catalogue, campaign and exhibition for Frisian art foundation, Coba de Groot - purposefully highlighting the foundation’s importance within the field of visual arts.
Originally commissioned by AMP Projectbureau Groningen, Huey collaborated with the foundation to create a catalogue that captures and reflects twelve years of supporting, educating and stimulating young people in the field of visual arts.
Coba de Groot derives its name from Jacoba de Groot, an intriguing personality who functioned as the Director of the School of Household in Franeker, Fryslân. Prior to her death in 2005, Jacoba devoted her legacy towards promoting knowledge of visual arts to the youth, as well as supporting their careers in the field of fine arts.
We created a catalogue which celebrated the importance of the foundation through use of the typographically-designed statement; ‘JA! COBA’, emphasizing the origin of the foundation and the Director’s existence.
