Bicycling through Post-impressionism

Posted by Glenwood Custom Cabinetry Glenwood Custom Cabinetry
Check out the second version of a glow-in-the-dark road by Daan Roosegaarde, of Studio Roosegaarde. This time, with a twinkling, bicycle path that’s inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting, The Starry Night.

Like his other Smart Highway, the bicycle path consists of thousands of twinkling stones that charge during the day, powering it enough to glow at night for eight hours.

It was constructed to celebrate the start of the Van Gogh 2015 international theme year, and runs through van Gogh’s birthplace. It’s one-of-a-kind and opened in Eindhoven this past November.

You can see Daan's version of "A Starry Night" in his design.

Pretty amazing!  Would love this for our neighborhoods' bike path!  Amazing how good design can be so inspiring...and motivating!!
