Van Gogh Alive is not an art exhibition in the traditional sense. Instead, it provides visitors with an immersive, multi-sensory art experience combining high-definition projections of Van Gogh’s paintings with digital surround sound, as visitors travel through periods of his life that defined him as an artist. Time Out described it as “making the magic of art come alive for all ages”.
Nearly £25,000 was raised for Kingston Hospital Charity to support plans to help enhance the care environments for children with cancer and for the growing number of patients with age-related macular degeneration and other conditions affecting the back of the eye. In addition, over 100 of our staff were provided with complimentary tickets to visit the exhibition with a guest while it was on, between 4 June and 26 September.
Rob Aldous, Kingston Hospital Charity’s Director, said: “We are enormously grateful to Timothy James & Partners for enabling us to benefit from this hugely popular London exhibition and for encouraging clients who attended one of their exclusive events at the venue to make a donation. We also wanted to thank Active Sport who brought this immersive experience to London and provided individuals, when booking tickets or while visiting, with an opportunity to make a donation in support of the three benefitting charities. All net proceeds from tickets purchased for 14 September and from the sale of three popular items in the exhibition’s shop were also donated equally between ourselves, Global Make Some Noise and Shout 85258. It was brilliant to be involved with such a memorable and successful art experience that has visited more than 65 cities worldwide and been enjoyed by more than 7 million people
