Beyond Van Gogh, where the magic starts

Enjoy the iconic exhibit in Miami through August 14th

Beyond Van Gogh exhibit in Miami is a glimpse and immersion into the world of Van Gogh and it was better than what I could’ve ever imagined.

Starting from the moment you walk in with a quote Van Gogh wrote “I dream my painting and I paint my dream”, you’re immediately captivated. You get to walk through each stage of his life leading to what made him an artist or as he calls it, a creator. This includes many quotes from the letters he wrote to his brother Theo Van Gogh such as “find things beautiful as much as you can, most people find too little beautiful.” One of my personal favorites. After getting to know a little more about Van Gogh, I believe this is where the magic starts. A motion art display showing visual representation of Van Gogh’s most famous works of art, most of which he didn’t get to see flourish the way that they are admired now. It was absolutely captivating to get lost in this room and what he created. I’ve had the opportunity to visit the Van Gogh  museum in Amsterdam and while it was also amazing to physically see what he painted, the Miami exhibit captures his work in a different way, it’s as if you’re in his paintings.

“It was really impressive, beyond what I was expecting. I would say that what really intrigued me about the room was the fact that they use a lot of motion arts combined with his actual work alongside making it a realistic and 3 dimensional experience. I would definitely recommend it everyone“, says Juan Saenz, who went to the show recently.

I would recommend this exhibit to everyone, even if you aren’t familiar with him, you will be after coming here. I leave you with this quote by the painter himself, “I believe that it may happen that one will succeed, and one must not begin to despair, even though defeated here and there; and even though one sometimes feels a kind of decay, though things go differently from the expected, it is necessary to take heart again and new courage.”
