The next stage of the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s 100th anniversary year is giant, Van Gogh, and viewable from the air. Travelers flying through the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport can see a giant recreation of the 1889 Vincent Van Gogh painting Olive Trees owned by MIA.
The Olive Trees painting owned by MIA is one of 18 paintings of olive trees known to have been painted by the Dutch artist while recuperating in the St-Paul mental asylum (no relation to the city across the river from Minneapolis) in St-Rémy, France. Fifteen of these paintings were created between June and December 1889.
