A fine art of bringing together 74 Van Gogh works in one spot

How do you bring together 74 Vincent van Gogh works worth millions of dollars from museums, foundations and private collections all over the world for one massive exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts? Carefully. Very carefully.

By the time Metro Detroiters finally set foot inside the highly anticipated “Van Gogh in America” exhibit opening to the public Sunday, all 74 works will be in place for visitors to admire in all their beauty.

But to get them there, each museum or collection sent its own “courier” to personally escort the work to the DIA. Works were sent from roughly 60 locations all over the globe, including Paris’s famed Musée d’Orsay, Madrid’s Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza and Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum. The paintings and drawings also will leave with a courier.
