For those who can't make it to Europe, there is a Van Gogh exhibition at
the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, from October 1998 to Jan?
1999.  Mostly from the collection in Amsterdam.

Free timed entry tickets. The only tickets remaining are for smae-day
entry. The scalpers (and others) picked up all the advance-dated ones.
Imagine paying a scalper for a free ticket!

The availability of these artworks is due to the fact that the Van Gogh
Museum in Amsterdam (one of my favorites) is undergoing a major 8 month
renovation and is closed.  It will re-open in May, FYI

Actually, scalpers were a tiny fraction of those who waited hours in line,
sometimes in the broiling sun, for the opportunity of getting a maximum of six
tickets.

And if you visit the Musee D'Orsay, be sure to go upstairs (the up
escalator is at the far end of the museum) and go through the small
galleries located over the entrance to the museum. They are wonderful
and would complement the show. How how I wish I could be there1

Even though there are many Van Goghs traveling to U.S. museums, last week
we saw a breathtaking Van Gogh exhibition of the remaining paintings from
the Van Gogh Museum temporarily set up at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.  It
is more than satisfying, beautiful and interesting - don't miss it.

The show is moving to Los Angeles in January.  There they charge
$20.

And yet, I'm going Dec. 2-6 to Washington to see this exhibit.  Without
tickets, I might be tempted to buy one if the price was right.  Be a
shame to fly Miami to D.C. and then queue up and then maybe still not be
close enough in line.

I saw the show in Washington with tickets that I paid $2 for from
Ticketcharge. (they no longer have any available).  I saw no ticket scalpers
at the museum.  Every morning 2,000 free tickets are distributed.

Barb,

No sweat getting tickets.  The first 50 people in the line of 2000 each
day are winos and drug ***s.  Once they get their tickets, they go
out to the park across the street (not the Mall side) where they sell
the tix for $10 to $20.
