Van Gogh Fête at the MoMA

Van Gogh                                                                Folberg

As art patrons and stylish readers, you’ve probably heard about “Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night,” the Museum of Modern Art special exhibition that recently earned a rave review in the Times. What you may not have heard about is “A Night Reading: An Evening Dedicated to Vincent Van Gogh,” the event that MoMA is hosting tonight in honor of the show. It’s taking place in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden and will feature a poetry reading by “artists and poets whose own work elicits the spirit of the night.” Plus (and here’s the kicker), Neil Folberg, the photographer of Abbeville’s volumes Celestial Nights and Travels with Van Gogh and the Impressionists: Discovering the Connections, will be among a talented group reading selections from Van Gogh’s letters and favorite works.

Are we Van Goghing? We are indeed. The event starts at 6:30 p.m; tickets cost $10 (members $8, students and seniors $5) and can be purchased from the “Adult Programs” section of MoMA’s website. Several of the Arbiters of Style will be in attendance, letting the starry night flow over us as we drink in the dark passions of poetry and art. Truly, an Abbeville evening.
