Have you ever wanted to see the masterpieces of Vincent Van Gogh up close? And even touch the paintings to feel the 3D texture behind the artist’s iconic works – even though that’s totally not allowed in a museum? Now, a special interactive pop up art tour by the Van Gogh Amsterdam Museum with support from Samsung is making it all possible across the United States.
The New Jersey stop on the Van Gogh Museum Editions Pop Up Tour will be in Short Hills Mall from December 1, 2018 to January 31, 2019. The exhibit will be on the mall’s upper level near Neiman Marcus.
“In this interactive traveling tour, you will see lifelike fine art replicas. These so-called ‘Van Gogh Museum Editions’ are premium quality, three dimensional replica’s of Van Gogh’s masterpieces,” according to event organizers. “The Museum Editions pay exclusive tribute to Van Gogh’s artistic genius and original, unique approach to art.”
“In the Pop Up tour you can examine the famous paintings that once graced the walls of the Van Gogh family home,” the museum added. “Enjoy the clarity of the masterpieces with their celebrated energy, light and brushstrokes, close to home. Meanwhile, you can find out more about Van Gogh’s eventful life’s story and the unique opportunity to acquire your own Museum Edition.”
The pop up tour also raises funds to preserve Van Gogh’s heritage and legacy for future legacies. The exhibit entry fee, merchandise sales (like stationery, home decor, specialty gifts, and more), and sales of Museum Editions goes to supporting this mission.
