Visiting art exhibits is one of the best ways for families to experience and appreciate art. This month, one of the most famous and highly anticipated exhibits in the world, Van Gogh Alive, is coming to Manila!
Van Gogh Alive is a digital art exhibit about the classic works of Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. The paintings will be projected onto walls, ceilings, and floors and set to classical music and unique lights, creating an immersive and stimulating exhibition experience.
The exhibition features Van Gogh’s works created from 1880 to 1890 in the French communes of Arles, Saint Rémy, and Auvers-sur-Oise. Grande Exhibitions, which created Van Gogh Alive, also shares that photos and videos have been augmented with the paintings to demonstrate Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration.
