Museum Night 2012. Light

On Museum Night the Van Gogh Museum and our partner the Hermitage Amsterdam jointly opened our doors from 7 pm to 2 am. Participants in this annual evening of ‘culture after dark’ could visit two exhibitions in the Hermitage Amsterdam: Vincent. The Van Gogh Museum in the Hermitage Amsterdam and Impressionism. Sensation & Inspiration. ‘Light’, our central theme during Museum Night, was entirely in keeping with these exhibitions, for light played a major role in the work of both the Impressionists and Van Gogh. The exhibitions were supplemented by a vibrant cultural programme.
