Don't miss the audio excerpts from the artist's letters, as read by "actor Kevin Bacon."

Damn fine reason to be in NYC.

I've seen a few exhibits in the past of the drawings of other famous painters (Picasso immediately comes to mind, but I forget who else) and I'd always been underwhelmed, but the Van Gogh exhibit - which I went to see today - was fantastic. I like them more than his paintings. Plus, the placards that accompanied each work did a wonderful job creating a narrative of Van Gogh's life and career. I highly recommend checking it out if you're in the NY area.
