Beyond Van Gogh featuring 300 pieces of art

The impressive paintings of Vincent van Gogh are shining brightly at the Enmax Centre. Members of the Lethbridge media received a first-hand look at the traveling exhibit called Beyond Van Gogh on Friday. Video Journalist Micah Quinn has the details on the exhibit that has made its way to around 60 North American cities in the past two and a half years.

Cutting edge projection technology is bringing the paintings of popular artist Vincent van Gogh to life using still and moving art.

Vincent van Gogh was one of the most famous painters in western art history but had a troubled life dealing with mental illness.

In 1888 he cut off his left ear and just two years later he committed suicide after he shot himself in the chest with a revolver at the young age of 37-years-old.

The exhibit is projected on 30,000 square feet of space and is the largest immersive experience in the country and features over 300 pieces of Van Gogh’s artwork.

The Beyond Van Gogh traveling exhibit will be on display in the Lethbridge Enmax Centre until August 6th.
