Van Gogh exhibition in a rock quarry....






 It was the hottest day of our journey.... and the sun was high in the sky.  
A store owner in St. Remy had told us to be sure to stop by an exhibit of Van Gogh's work in an old limestone quarry and so, in search of some possible cool air, we headed down the road.

Wow!! 

We bought our tickets and stepped inside....yes, the air felt cool and so welcome...but more than that.......projected onto the walls of this huge cavern space was a themed light show which used over 50 projectors and featured between 2000 and 3000 images of the art of Van Gogh, set to a specially written soundtrack of amazing music.  The sheer size of the images, and the originality of the setting made for an unusual experience, to say the least....and one where we were put at the center of the action ( literally ).

I love your new blog :) It is such fun to hear about your trip to France and about your new experiences.
I am having a wonderful time with my Danish family that is here in the States with us...such a joy to spend some time with our little Grandson.

my heavens - how amazing a site / sound / sensation that must have been. I have always liked the textures of Van Gogh ... I can only imagine how well they must have translated on such a large scale of textured stone. wow.
