Escape to Van Gogh
In a just world, I’d be on a plane headed to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, but well, you know . . . No such luck for the foreseeable future. I’m going anyway. Virtually. For free, or, if so inclined, for a small donation.
Dozens of these virtual tours cross my screen with regularity. A few weeks ago, I clicked on Van Gogh Museum—Amsterdam: Livestream Art Tour (sponsored by Washington DC History and Culture) to indicate my interest in this Zoom event scheduled for December 26, and then lazily failed to do anything further. By the time I got back to it, it was sold out. Even Zoom has its limits.
They added on another showing. Sold out. Another. Sold out. My now January 10 showing? Just sold out. People do love Vincent.
More showings have appeared. Click here. Maybe you can snag a ticket. It’s the antidote to cabin fever.
(Caveat—some of these tours are free, and other, similar ones, are not. Choose accordingly.)
