The Van Gogh Affect


Sept. 24, 2021 - March 27, 2022

The Van Gogh Affect is an exhibition of work by award-winning photographers Lynn Johnson and Patricia Lanza, addressing the artist Vincent Van Gogh’s profound and ever-present influence on contemporary perceptions of the world. Simultaneously contemplating and reaffirming Van Gogh’s resounding posthumous influence over art and culture of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries, Johnson and Lanza offer evocative insight into the artist’s uniquely sensitive lived experience of place and light.
