Vincent Van Gogh painted one of his most famous pieces "The Starry Night" in June of 1889 and it's become one of the most recognized pieces of artwork in the world.

I've been lucky enough to see it in person at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, as you can see from my photo above. It's beautiful and whenever I see that familiar blue, white, green, and yellow-swirled masterpiece, I feel something in my soul, it just speaks to me.

I've noticed an ad on social media over the past few months about what's billed as "Beyond Van Gogh". It's being called "An immersive experience" where you basically walk into rooms that have two story projections of Van Gogh's masterpiece paintings and other pieces of his art plastered across a venue where social-distance rules can be applied.

The first Van Gogh events that I saw were being held in New York City, St. Louis, Buffalo, Detroit, and Austin. Listen, I love the artist, but if I'm going to go to those cities, I'm going to hunt down real art from Van Gogh in their Museums.

The past couple of days though, I've seen that the promoters of this event have purchased "Van Gogh Danbury", and have started an e-mail sign-up list to "Get access first to tickets". The trouble is, there is no date, no venue, and no other information about this event. It only says "Opening soon!" in the comments. I'm guessing it's a test, if they get enough interest in their e-mail sign ups, maybe they'll rent a venue in our area? We'll see, I signed up, if I start getting spammed about Dali: The Mustache Ride, I'll let you know.

Wildest Wildlife Encounters in Greater Danbury Area

Things can get wild if you live in the Greater Danbury, CT area, just ask anyone with a camera. The Ethan and Lou Morning Show on I-95 did just that, asking our listeners to share their animal encounters. Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My.
