In 2007 the artist Gabriele Prill startet with a lot of enthusiasm the event „artists help children“.
100 artists had designed 100 tiles. The variety of the works of art was large, as in painting technique, material and design. The tiles were auctioned in the Musikbunker Aachen in favor of the BUNTEN KREIS e.V.. It was important to her, to organize and to design an event that everybody would benefit from. The artists, which were presented here and made these events possible with their artwork, got a lot of press as well as the BUNTER KREIS e.V. who got the proceeds of these events.
The third and last event in this run will happen in fall 2010 at the Couven Museum, Aachen. Marcel Phillipp, the mayor of Aachen, took over the patronage for the event 2010.

September 25th October 24th 2010
The Couven museum, which presents numerous valuable tiles, mostly from The
Netherlands from the 17th and 18th century from the foundation Ludwig in a
show collection, will temporarly integrate 100 tiles during the Aachener
art-route 2010 which will be designed by 100 artists.
This project, which was realized in 2007 in the museum Ludwig Forum Aachen
and in 2009 in the museum Zinkhütter Hof, Stolberg and now will find an end
in the Couven museum, goes back to the initiative of the artist Gabriele
The basis of all artistic conception is a tile. The tiles will be worked on
with different materials, like porcelanpaint, copper sheet, steel, oil- and
acrylpaint, gold leaf, glue, wood, glass, burlap, spraypaint or silicon. The
result is so diveres as well as the artistic rudiments.
Not only regional artist as well as supra-regional and sporadic
international artists participate in this action which ends up in a social
project. On October 24th 2010 will be the auction of the 100 tiles whose
proceeds will go to the BUNTER KREIS in the region Aachen e.v..
