Van Gogh in Detroit

In celebration of its status as the first public museum in the United States to purchase a painting by Vincent van Gogh, the Detroit Institute of Arts is organizing the first exhibition dedicated to the introduction and early reception of the iconic artist’s work in America.

Featuring around sixty five of Van Gogh’s paintings and works on paper from collections around the world, the exhibition will explore the considerable efforts made by early promoters of modernism in the United States—including dealers, collectors, private art organizations, public institutions, and the artist’s family—to introduce the artist, his biography, and his artistic production into the American consciousness.

Visit Belle Isle with a special stop at the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory with an exotic and rare collection of plants from around the world. It is the oldest continually running conservatory in the United States and is divided into five distinct sections: the Palm House, the Tropical House, the Cactus House, a sunken Fernery, and the Show House.

A meal voucher is included for lunch at the DIA Cafe.
