WZL with his winning umbrella and his inspiration (Zoe) for his umbrella
Impliva made it possible that one of the 55 umbrellas we now have in the UmbrellART collection was chosen to be one time exclusively produced. WZL (NL) won during the X Marks The Spot opening night the 4th of October in the Chiellerie the price for best umbrella chosen by Impliva. Impliva is the biggest distributor of umbrellas in Europe. And Xstreets is proud to had them as a sponsor for our latest event.

UmbrellART is an initiative of Xstreets Collective. The idea for an umbrella show started with IVESone designing an umbrella. Some talks with friends further, the idea is now like this: every artist designs an umbrella of their choice, with whatever they want to design on it. They will stay the owner of their umbrella. The umbrella is for at least one year in our show.
The show includes now more than 40 different umbrellas made by artists from all over the world.
If you join UmbrellART you accept the following conditions:
- The artist that designed the umbrella is the owner of the umbrella. At any time he or she can get the art object back. The costs for sending (to us and from us) are for the artist. But when it is in the show it belongs to the UmbrellART crew and they can do whatever they want with it. So they can show the umbrellas everywhere they want to Let it Rain! Except when the artist let us now that certain things will be excluded.
- UmbrellART is not responsible for any damage to the art object. It is and article of use. Of course UmbrellART will be as accurate and careful as possible with the umbrellas. Also missing umbrellas is not the responisbility of the UmbrellART crew. We will do anything to prevent that of course!
- UmbrellART is not responsible for the harm to people and or company's made by the artist as a statement or mockery. The artist that made the object has copyright and it is her or his responsibility.
- The artist(s) will give their price that they want for the umbrella for sale. This price includes 15% for Xstreets. With this percentage Xstreets can organise world wide show with UmbrellART. The rest of the money is for the artist. The umbrella can be sold at any event of UmbrellART or trough the website/webshop.
