Following on from its stellar success in Europe, Asia and Australia, the multi-sensory Vincent Van Gogh exhibition has made it to the US for the first time with a show at the Salvador Dalí Museum, Florida. But fear not, if you can't make it to Florida, you can catch it later this month at the Germania Club Building in Chicago, and then as a permanent exhibition from June at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields.
The highly-anticipated Van Gogh Alive is now showing at the Dalí in St Petersburg, Florida. According to organizers, it's the first US museum to host an exhibition of this scale. Through ceiling digital projection, close to 3000 moving images illuminate the colorful brushstrokes of Vincent van Gogh in larger-than-life scenes, giving visitors the opportunity to effectively step inside the Dutch artist's famous paintings. A musical soundscape accompanies the projections to add to the dream-like state of the exhibition, while aromas are infused throughout the auditorium so that museum-goers can literally stop and smell the Sunflowers.
