Becoming Van Gogh exhibit at Denver Art Museum

DAMIf you haven’t had the chance to check out Becoming Van Gogh at DAM, I highly recommend it. I was so impressed that our “little” art museum pulled together this amazing collection from pieces that usually reside in places such as Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, and Musée d’Orsay, just to name a few.

I did the audio tour this time – a rarity for me. I usually prefer to just observe and enjoy the work on my own. I’m so glad I made an exception this time, as the audio drew your attention to subtle changes that the artist made in his technique during the evolution of his work.

I had no idea how very self-taught Van Gogh was. His story is an amazing testament to focus, hard work, and using the resources one has.

The exhibit will only be showing at DAM and will be here through January 20, 2013.
