ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — "Van Gogh Alive" is unlike anything you have ever seen at the Dalí Museum.

And that's saying something.

The 40-minute multi-sensory exhibition uses 35 projectors, state-of-the-art sound and more than 3,000 images to tell the story of the Dutch post-impressionist's artistic life.

The mind-bending show was created by Australia's Grande Exhibitions.

The show opens November 21 and runs through April 11, 2021. It is included with a general admission ticket, but reservations are required.

"Van Gogh Alive" is for all ages, but any show about the self-tortured artist can get intense and emotional.

One other thing to remember: although the 40 minutes goes fast, there is no seating.
