Tickets for Major Van Gogh Exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Go on Sale Tomorrow,
Thursday, December 1
REMEMBER: Philadelphia is the only U.S. venue for the first van Gogh exhibition to be seen in the city for over a decade.
Holiday gift tickets and memberships are available.
Tickets for the much-anticipated exhibition Van Gogh Up Close (February 1 — May 6, 2012) will be on sale Thursday, December 1, 2011.
Van Gogh Up Close, a major exhibition organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Canada, presents a stunning range of masterworks including significant loans from museums and private collections in Europe, North America, and Japan. The exhibition will debut in Philadelphia, the only U.S. venue, before traveling to Canada.
Visitors may want to reserve early as exhibitions of works by van Gogh are exceedingly popular. Recent exhibitions in Tokyo and London drew exceptionally large audiences. The last van Gogh exhibition to be seen in Philadelphia—a show that was shared with Boston and Detroit—attracted some 300,000 visitors during its 12-week run.
