Hey Gang! I've got an event that you art lovers out there are just going to love! And, some of you movie watchers out there are going to be interested too! This little piece of Tampa Bay entertainment comes from our friends over at MOSI...and let me tell you, I will certainly be making my way over to see it. Here are the details -
MOSI will debut VAN GOGH: Brush with Genius, a 40-minute IMAX Dome Theatre film about the life and paintings of Vincent van Gogh. Distributed by MacGillivray Freeman Films, VAN GOGH captures the painter's most famous works, immersing viewers in breathtaking landscapes, extraordinary colors and brushstrokes, all shown for the first time in unprecedented detail through the stunningly visual effects of the IMAX screen!
VAN GOGH leads viewers on a journey through the surprisingly short 10-year period of the artist's career during which he painted more than 900 paintings. Told from the perspectives of three main characters -- Ellen, a museum researcher, Peter, a film director, and Vincent van Gogh himself -- VAN GOGH follows in the artist's footsteps, traveling from the Netherlands to Auvers-sur-Oise and passing through Arles, Saint-Rémy and Paris. From the dazzling yellow of the artist's famous cornfields to the deep blue of his famous night sky, audiences will rediscover the source of some of the most important works in art history.
The film opens to the public March 13, 2009 and runs through September 7, 2009. Make sure you visit www.mosi.org to get the rest of the details about this and other Tampa Bay area events happing at MOSI.
