In the Würth collection, Austrian art as well as the relationships to artists and art institutions beyond Austria finally don’t play a big role thanks to the location of the Würth family in Salzburg. Not final is the connection through the Würth sculpture garden at Arenberg castle, which, since 2004, has arisen in cooperation with the Salzburg foundation of the American Austrian Foundation and in which the collection’s chosen works of art are permanently on display and the Salzburg Foundation’s Salzburg art project, “Walk of Modern Art”, has been advanced. Through my work on the construction of the art collection initiated by Prof. Dr. h. c. (multiple doctor titles) Reinhold Würth, I, personally, also built a very close connection to art and artists in Salzburg and Austria. Such being the case, I gladly accepted a seat on the executive board of the Salzburg Foundation for one of the most spectacular open-air museums. It is a great honor and pleasure to contribute together on the Salzburg Foundation’s executive board. Furthermore – isn’t Salzburg always worth a trip?
