You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the stories behind some of Vincent Van Gogh’s most famous works.

“Anyone who has had the incredible privilege of seeing an original Van Gogh knows it already feels like it’s leaping from the wall,” Curtat said. “The colors are so bright and the movement is so present. Here, you are just really walking into it. There’s something so unique about that.”

The event has sold over 4 million tickets globally.

“It’s wonderful for kids if they just want to run around and follow the breath strokes or twirl around as the petals are flowing around us,” Curtat said. “If you want to sit, that’s great. It’s wonderful to walk around. That’s what it’s made for, but you can go at it the way you want.”

The exhibition will run from Sept. 16, 2022 to Nov. 6, 2022.
