This exhibit has been touring the United States for some time now, Miami, St. Louis, Detroit just to name a few stops, and now it's here in Grand Rapids. Beyond Van Gogh opens at DeVos Place today and runs through July 9th.

It's a 30,000 square foot exhibit, projected on all walls, ceiling and floors. It's totally Immersive and interactive using cutting-edge projection technology that brings Van Gogh's work to life and places you right in the middle of it.

 

The use of motion is subtle (windmills that turn, eyes that blink), and dramatic. You will notice his swirls sped around the room to become Starry Nights. Another one of your favorites might be the flying cherry blossoms. You actually feel as if you become one of his paintings.

You learn so much about Van Gogh. For instance, he never made any money as a painter. As a matter of fact, you see so many self portraits because he couldn't afford any models, so he used himself to learn to paint faces. Starry Starry Skies, one of his most famous works, was painted while in the asylum. And, there is so much more.
