Lust for Life
5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Many museum visitors requested a movie about Impressionist Vincent Van Gogh. Outreach Coordinator Laura Bocquin invites you to enjoy the 1956 classic about the artist, Lust for Life, in which Kirk Douglas plays Van Gogh and Anthony Quinn plays Paul Gauguin. While new findings about Van Gogh’s life have surfaced in the over 50 years since the movie was made, the captivating reflections upon the artist’s powerful expressions and struggles for peace, recognition, and relationships remain relevant.  Bocquin will host the brief introduction and follow up discussion.  The Museum will provide complimentary popcorn, and beverages will be available for purchase.
