Entering Vincent’s World

An amazing multi-sensory, experience.

I blended in rather well with Sunflowers.
(It felt like you could touch the paint.)
And I was almost hidden in Starry Night.

The website states:

Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3,000 inspirational images transforms every surface that surrounds you.

At Van Gogh Alive you don’t just look at his paintings,
you step inside them and feel their power.

I have to agree.

The room was filled with so many constantly changing (and moving) images, at times it was hard to know where to look.

Ultimately, you just had to get comfortable, sit back (or stand) and enjoy the show.

(And take a few photos.)

I thought the musical accompaniment was perfect.

From the time we walked in through Starry Night . . .

. . . til walking out through a field of (fake) sunflowers.

We had a wonderful time.

That’s our eldest daughter Kate and this was her second visit.

I could easily go again.

There were so many people milling around, I had to capture this still life with two shots.

I was really moved by the whole experience,
especially so when I read the following displayed on the wall.

I can’t change the fact that my paintings don’t sell. But the day will come when people will recognize that they are worth more than the value of the paints used in the picture.

VINCENT VAN GOGH

And finally, I must admit, the following was playing on a loop in my mind.

  1. What an amazing experience! I loved that you got to experience it with your daughter.
    And to think he didn’t know how much the world would love his paintings!
    Thank you for sharing!
