This August, Galleria shoppers can catch a sneak peek of the Dallas Museum of Art’s blockbuster exhibit showcasing rarely seen Vincent Van Gogh paintings.

The mall and the museum are partnering to provide a preview of the Van Gogh and the Olive Groves exhibition. The series traces the artist’s evolving depiction of the olive groves of Saint-Rémy over a six-month period during his stay as a self-admitted patient at the local asylum.

The exhibition, premiering Oct. 17 at the Dallas Museum of Art, will feature originals from public and private collections. The preview at the Galleria will consist of recreations with links to online resources. Children participating in the Galleria’s PALS Program can also receive free art kits and coloring books from the DMA.

“The Dallas Museum of Art is committed to sharing art with North Texans where they are, and [it’s] vital that we take the lead in placing art in and around our diverse community,” said KC Hurst, chief marketing and communications officer for the DMA. “Opportunities like this help us expand the meaning of learning with possibility and community.”

The pop-up can be viewed Aug. 5-31. It’s free to attend and offers a hassle-free alternative to the beleaguered immersive Van Gogh experiences.
