In 1922 the Detroit Institute of Arts became the first public museum in the United States to purchase a painting by world-renowned artist Vincent van Gogh. The museum is celebrating the centennial anniversary with a “once in a generation” exhibit of 74 original pieces by the artist.
Featuring interviews with the director of the Detroit Institute of Arts, Salvador Salort-Pons, curator Jill Shaw, and the great grandniece of Vincent van Gogh, Josien van Gogh, this short documentary from Hour Media brings a look at this “once in a generation” exhibit.
