Exhibition ‘Choosing Vincent’
A tribute to the Van Gogh family. Without the unconditional support that they offered Vincent, the museum simply would not have existed.
For 50 years and counting, the Van Gogh Museum has been inspiring people with the artworks of Vincent van Gogh (and his contemporaries). In 2023, we celebrate our anniversary. Will you join us?
The Van Gogh Museum celebrates 50 years of inspiration. Read on for the complete anniversary programme.
During this special year, we will be pulling out all the stops with exhibitions that bring you closer to Van Gogh as an artist and a person.
If you’d like to let your inner artist loose, join one of our painting workshops. Do you have the courage to choose your own destiny, like Vincent? What makes the colours in Vincent’s paintings so special? Besides workshops for adults, there are also dedicated workshops for children.
If a laid-back evening with DJs, talks and live performances is more your thing, check out Vincent on Friday. As always, there are also several guided tours to get to know the highlights of the collection. There is a Family Guided Tour available too.
On 2 June 2023, it will be exactly 50 years since the museum opened its doors to the public. We are celebrating 50 years of inspiration on Museumplein with a packed programme of activities. Paint like Vincent in the open air, listen to a musical performance or marvel at street theatre. There’s something for everyone!
So save the date of 2 June. We’ll send the invitation to the party in our newsletter. If you haven’t already done so, subscribe now so you’ll receive the invitation in your inbox.
Vincent’s paintings colour your life. His art and take on life are an inspiration to many. There are still plenty of Vincents among us: people who inspire others around them with their talent or passion. Or people who support others through thick and thin. We will search for the 50 most inspiring people. The winners will receive a very special gift from Vincent van Gogh.
From March, we will start looking for them. You may nominate anyone who inspires you. In May, we will travel the country with the Friends Lottery to celebrate with the 50 winners.
