Free Spririts - On a bike ride from one to another

Through the Flemish and Walloon Brabant provinces, an enchanting bicycle route joins Felix and Folon.

“Free spirits” offers a unique route between two monographic museums, located a dozen kilometers from each other, on the outskirts of Brussels, one in Drogenbos dedicated to the painter-farmer Felix De Boeck and the other in La Hulpe designed by Jean-Michel Folon. Both artists were free spirits of their time. Belonging to different generations, they crossed the 20th century and left their mark on it. Beyond their age, their culture and their background, they share a lot in common: a taste for freedom, an attachment to nature and a profound humanism.

In their lives and in their art, they have stood for values that are still relevant today, in particular a profound respect for nature and human rights. The FeliXart Museum and the Fondation Folon bring these artistic and humanistic legacies to life.

The project also encourages soft mobility and offers a new bicycle route to discover these two museums. The visitor’s guide, enriched with stories by the two artists, offers you the keys to the reading and invites you to discover more…
