A dramatic reading of the letters of van Gogh by Gerard KUBELKA, Principal of Sacred Heart Catholic School, and narration by Amanda WHITE, with Dr. Dominic A. AQUILA, Vice President of Academic Affairs at the University of St. Thomas
Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center and the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies
Few people allow themselves to be enticed by the wonder and awe of reality; Vincent van Gogh was one of them. “In the stars, as well as in the everyday facets of the simple life of the peasants, van Gogh tried to capture what he perceived of the infinite, in an unceasing search for beauty,” Kathleen Erickson.
Through a dramatic reading of van Gogh's letter to his brother, Theo, we will understand the art and life of one of the most influential post-impressionist painters of the 20th Century, an artist who continues to challenge us to seize what lies beyond a starry night.
The event is open to the public and free of charge.
