Eindhoven, Netherlands-In 1889, renowned artist, Vincent van Gohg created Starry Night, one of the most iconic paintings in history. Now, one man has created a tribute to honor Gohg.

Dutch artist, Daan Roosegaarde honored “Starry Night” by constructing a glowing bike path that opened on November 12, 2014.

The path reproduced Gohg’s famous piece of artwork.

The route is 650-yards long, with solar-powered LED lights incorporated into the cement. The trail stretches between Eindhoven and Neunen, Netherlands.

Roosegaarde’s exhibit is the first of the Van Gogh 2015 movement that will be lining up cultural events throughout the year to mark Gogh’s 125th anniversary of his death, which will be July 29, 2015.
