“We are overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response to Van Gogh Alive from a wide range of audiences,” Hank Hine, executive director of the Dalí, said in a news release. “The experience blends art and technology to educate visitors about Vincent van Gogh’s development as an artist and the rhythms of his turbulent life. We are pleased to be able to extend its run. Such meaningful art experiences are particularly needed and important at this historic moment.”

Presented by Australian company Grande Experiences, key van Gogh paintings are digitized and projected onto a series of large screens, walls and the floors in the galleries of the Hough Family wing, set to a cinematic classical score.
