The association Arti et Amicitiae (for art and friendship) founded in 1839, as well as
the Felix Meritis society, aims to promote the arts and science.
In 1840 the building on the Rokin was bought and renovated.
In the pediment is a sandstone winged ox's head, the symbol of the equalist Luke,
who was the patron saint of the painters.
The four statues made by Franz Stracké (1820-1898) represent architecture, sculpture, painting and engraving.
The interior and the oak staircase were designed by H.P. Berlage (1856-1934) and A. C. Bleys (1842-1912).
Arti et Amicitiae strives to promote art in the general sense and organizes several art exhibitions each year.
