There’s nothing wrong with a simple dinner and movie date. But don’t we all want something new every now and then? So if that special someone is really into art or if you just want to experience something new, the ‘Van Gogh Alive’ exhibit is the perfect place for an artsy date! But there’s also no shame if you wanna go alone or with friends.

‘Van Gogh Alive’

So are you interested? Well here’s everything you need to know about the ‘Van Gogh Alive’ exhibit! It is happening on the 26th of October until the 8th of December 2019. Ticket prices are at 450 PHP for students and 750 PHP for adults. And there are seven timeslots available from Mondays to Sundays. Because when you book your tickets you also have to pick a timeslot. Your ticket allows you a 90-minute free-reign experience of the exhibit. Also, make sure you arrive 15 minutes before your selected timeslot! The exhibit will take place at 4th floor of One Bonifacio High Street Mall located at 5th Ave, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. And finally, you can pre-purchase your tickets at the Mind Museum Ticket Booth from 9 AM to 5 PM. Alternatively, you can also pre-purchase on their website. And starting October 26, you can also purchase tickets at the exhibit itself. But it’s better if you book it in advance to avoid lines and unavailable timeslots.

Spruce up on your Van Gogh facts!

If you’re really interested in taking that special someone to the Van Gogh Alive exhibit, you should at least have a little knowledge about who Van Gogh is. So here are some interesting facts you can share with your date during the exhibit:

  1. His full name is Vincent Willem van Gogh, he was a Dutch post-impressionist painter. And is one of the most influential figures in Western Art.
  2. Did you know that Van Gogh cut off his own ear? It was because he suffered from delusions. And in a fight with fellow artist Paul Gauguin he ended up getting so riled up he cut off his left ear and gave it to a prostitute named Rachel.
  3. He only started painting at the age of 27, and he managed to produce 2,100 artworks before he died at the age of 37.

 

Best of luck to those who are planning an artsy date night to the ‘Van Gogh Alive’ exhibit. And maybe you can even bring sunflowers to really incorporate the “Van Gogh” mood. Get it? Because Van Gogh has famous paintings about Sunflowers?
