Coroplast Group has supported the regional art scene for more than ten years. In cooperation with the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal, we support high-caliber exhibitions every year and not only invite art lovers and representatives from the worlds of politics and commerce, but also our employees to exclusive guided tours together with the artists and the museum curator Dr. Gerhardt Finckh.
Coroplast has promoted numerous exhibitions at the Von der Heydt Museum and Art Gallery since 2007, including “Sven Drühl: Works 2001–2013,” “Maike Freess,” and “Tony Cragg – Retrospective – Parts of the World.” “Tobias Zielony: Photography and Video”, “Thomas Wrede: Photography 1991-2018", " Oskar Schlemmer" and "Hans-Christian-Schink: Friendship request NO 1".
In 2012, our passion for art prompted us to initiate the CoroArt Art Award, which we have regularly presented ever since. In collaboration with the School of Art and Design at the University of Wuppertal, Coroplast Group rewards talented artists and designers for outstanding creative works that they make using our company’s products. We want to give budding young artists a creative challenge, a platform to present their works, and promote them in general. After the award presentation, we purchase many of the works to exhibit them at our premises, enabling our employees to share our passion for art.
In 2019, we awarded our Art Prize for the sixth time, which was endowed with a total of 3.000 euros. The motto this year was “Wind of Change.” The award ceremony took place on November 5, and the winners were selected by a jury composed of several experts.
One glance at our various locations tells you that art enjoys a high priority at Coroplast Group. Regardless of whether conference rooms, hallways, or staff offices, a great number of pictures and sculptures adorn the walls, transforming the company into an exhibition area. Dotted among the works of celebrated people are the creations of talented young artists and designers, such as the winners of our CoroArt contest.
These works make Coroplast a place of creativity and motivation, where art is an integral element of inspiration in our daily work.
In honor of its commitment to the world of art, Coroplast Group was presented with the prestigious “Nadel der Medici” business award in the category “Best Overall Corporate Concept” in 2016.
The award is regularly given to companies and institutions from Düsseldorf and the surrounding region that are particularly amenable to art and promote it at their various locations.
In 2016, the prize-giving ceremony of the “Nadel der Medici” was held in the festive atmosphere of the “Lambertussaal” in Düsseldorf and attended by Thomas Geisel, Mayor of the City of Düsseldorf as well as more than 100 guests from the worlds of commerce, art, culture, and politics.
Coroplast Group has supported the “Wuppertaler Kurrende” (Boys’ Choir) for many years. With its 90-year tradition, the Kurrende is among the outstanding cultural institutions in the Bergisches Land region.
Working together with numerous kindergartens and schools, the Kurrende provides key impulses for the music education and cultural identity of our children. It therefore plays a unique educational role in the region, which the family-run company Coroplast is happy to promote.
