Video: Rembrandt Enlivens Shopping Mall

A painting by Rembrandt van Rijn, the Dutch master artist, comes to life in this video staged in a busy shopping mall.  Using the slogan, “Our Heroes are Back” and inspired by Rembrandt’s Night Watch (1642), it promotes the return of all the major artworks after a decade’s long renovation of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.  It’s chaotic and confusing, so hang on to the end and it’ll come together.   Thanks to Cathy Fields for suggesting this video.
