John and Renate Hammond are celebrating over forty years as curators and practising artists with the opening of their Private Museum which houses their private collection of art. The Hammond Collection evolved through purchasing works of art and gifts from artists exhibited by curators John and Renate Hammond over the last four decades, running their Galerie am Theater (1979 – 1992) and Art-Agency Hammond (since 1993). The collection contains 650 works of art, of which over 400 are by Renate Hammond who is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg.
