Created by Grande Experiences, Van Gogh Alive is a large-scale, immersive multi-sensory arts and entertainment experience that has inspired over 8 million people across 70 cities around the world.

For Van Gogh Alive, Starlight will transform its stage house into the world of the revered 19th-century painter. Patrons will wander through the exhibit in Starlight’s 12,000-square-foot and climate-controlled space.

Visitors will experience Van Gogh’s paintings in an interactive exhibit that’s simultaneously enchanting, entertaining, and educational. Art stations will be available where visitors can also create their own art with the help of expert video tutorials. “What a dazzling way to broaden the arts in our community,” says Julián Zugazagoitia, director & CEO of The Nelson-Atkins.
