Mount Dora, Florida: Starry Night House

In 2017 the owners of a house painted its surrounding wall as a tribute to Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night." When city officials told them their wall had to match their house, they painted their house that way, too.

This was fantastic; I love the way this house looks. I recommend going by to view from the street even if you don't take any pictures.

It was a bit rainy on our visit, but love the wall and house! Wish it was not just a drive-by; will stop again with better weather.

On a wall near Van Gogh house: "The city has severed my ear, no way to send it dear. As this wall is my canvas, let me love letter show, have hear for art on the 14th and please leave it near. Van Gogh."

Beautiful! City should leave them alone!

[Betty, 04/16/2018]

The homeowners of the "Starry Night House," in a town ordinance dispute regarding their outer wall mural of the famous Vincent Van Gogh painting, slyly complied with a civic directive to repaint it to match the house. They painted the rest of the house to match in Starry Night-style!
