“Connoisseurs and new admirers of Van Gogh’s work are guaranteed to get a breathtaking perspective on the influential artist’s work. Fusing cutting edge technology, theatrical storytelling, animation and some of the finest art ever created, “Immersive Van Gogh” is a unique and compelling experience that seemingly transports the viewer into the mind of the artist to see these timeless works like never before,” said Corey Ross, co-producer of Immersive ArtSpace.
The exhibit features illuminating spotlights and Van Gogh’s “head-to-toe brushstrokes” with animated details from his renowned artworks including “Self-Portrait with Felt Hat” and “Starry Night.”
The one-hour tour experience includes several additional safety measures such as contactless ticket taking, temperature checks, hand sanitizer stations, and social distancing markers. The venue said all visitors must always wear a mask throughout the exhibition.
