051 Van Gogh Museum 50 years
THE STORY BEHIND THE LIGHTS
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the Van Gogh Museum wanted to do something special. A way to collectively commemorate this impressive milestone and honor Vincent Van Gogh. We’re pretty Vincent would very much approve of our public Van Gogh drone show with 200 drones!
First time at Museumplein
In a groundbreaking feat, DRIFT and Drone Stories mark the historic moment with a drone show above the grandeur of Amsterdam's Museumplein. Be captivated as the drones take flight, transforming the night sky into a canvas of ethereal beauty, celebrating the legacy of the Van Gogh Museum's 50 years of artistic brilliance. The enchanting allure of Vincent van Gogh's timeless creations resulted in a art drone show simultaneously showing the past and the present, combining modern art with contemporary art.
