Van Gogh Exhibit at DAM!

This fall, Denver will be host to painter Vincent Van Gogh's work. 
This will be the only place in America you will be able to see over 70 works in one place from all over North America and Europe. 
I am incredibly excited to see this exhibit! I have only seen one Van Gogh in person, "Sunflowers" at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in
2011. 

Van Gogh's painting "Self Portrait With Bandaged Ear" was also the inspiration for a painting I did entitled, "Portrait of Holyfield With Bandaged Ear" for a sports themed art show last year. 

Here is the information for the exhibit and verbiage from the DAM website. 


****An in-depth exploration of Vincent van Gogh’s unconventional path to becoming one of the world’s most recognizable artists, Becoming Van Gogh examines critical steps in his artistic evolution through more than 70 paintings and drawings by Van Gogh, along with works by artists to whom he responded. Becoming Van Goghbrings together loans from more than 60 public and private collections throughout Europe and North America to tell the story of a number of key formative periods throughout the artist’s career. Denver is the only venue for this exhibition. A special dated and timed ticket will be required. Tickets will go on sale to DAM members August 1 at 10 am and to the public on August 15 at 10 am.
