Würth and the Arts
Art at Würth
Art and culture form an integral part of the Würth Group. Their strong presence and the multi-facetted activities are the result of a vivid corporate culture. Both the museums at the headquarters of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG in Künzelsau, Kunsthalle Würth and Johanniterkirche in Schwäbisch Hall (German state of Baden-Württemberg) and the ten associated galleries at the international companies of the Würth Group are evidence of this great involvement.
Central point is the Museum Würth which was opened at the company headquarters in 1991. Ten years later, in 2001, the Kunsthalle Würth in Schwäbisch Hall followed. The last building for exhibitions that was opened in 2008 is Johanniterkirche that especially serves for the exhibition of the collection’s medieval works of art. Furthermore, Hirschwirtscheuer offers exhibitions in a more informal setting. These institutions are supported by Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG. A particular exhibition provides Würth Industrie at Bad Mergentheim: a cultural-historical exhibition about 800 years of management culture.
Since 1999, associated galleries have been opened successively at the international companies in Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Spain and Switzerland.
The exhibitions are integrated in the context of the respective company and facilitate an inspiring exchange between art and business. Cultural events around the exhibitions and active conveying of art, which is especially focused on children and adolescents, round off the offer.
The exhibition program is based on the Würth Collection which was started by Reinhold Würth in the 1960s. It today comprises about 18,300 works of modern and contemporary art as well as a significant compilation of late medieval painting and sculpture.
