How to describe Beyond Van Gogh? For Van Gogh fans, it’s like being placed in the middle of Van Gogh’s masterpieces.
For those who haven’t discovered Van Gogh (yet!), it is an all-encompassing introduction to his work.
While you are at the exhibit, you are surrounded by a moving canvas of Van Gogh’s work. My favorite is Van Gogh’s Almond Blossoms, which starts as tiny branches on the exhibit floor and then the branches grow on the wall until they bloom and then you are surrounded by almond blossoms floating to the ground.
Younger kids (5-12) will enjoy being part of the show as the images are projected on them. Also, the area is small enough that younger kids can explore and still be supervised.
Teens should enjoy not only the image projection and the soundtrack but also seeing the beauty and breathe of Van Gogh’s work.
About: Immerse yourself in the world of Vincent Van Gogh like you’ve never experienced before. Beyond Van Gogh is a rich and unique multimedia experience, taking the viewer on a journey through over 300 iconic artworks including instantly-recognizable classics “The Starry Night”, “Sunflowers”, and “Cafe Terrace at Night”, now freed from their frames. Set to a symphonic score and using the artist’s own dreams, thoughts, and words to drive the experience as a narrative, Van Gogh’s art comes to life by appearing and disappearing, flowing across multiple surfaces and heightening the senses with their immense detail. Guests will leave with a new appreciation of this prolific artist’s stunning work. Source: Beyond Van Gogh San Jose
