Presented to the community by Wells Fargo, "Van Gogh Alive" is the synthesis of traditional art and modern technology. Over 3,000 of Vincent van Gogh's most famous works are taken outside of the from and brought to life in a whirlwind of vibrant colors and vivid details. For the first time, guests can walk through images of famous works, such as "The Starry Night," "Sunflowers," "The Cafe Terrace on the Place du Forum," "The Yellow House," "Bedroom in Aires" and many more. Guests will be complete immersed in Van Gogh's paintings with floor-to-ceiling projections. Part of what makes Van Gogh's art so famous today is his life story. While navigating the exhibition, visitors will also learn about the creative origins of the paintings and view excerpts from Van Gogh's letters that offer insight into the artist's life.
