You kept seeing the advertisements for this exhibit in New York City and now, we don’t have to travel the 3 or so hours to see it, it’s coming here.
NOTE: I did get a chance to see “Van Gogh: the Immersive Experience” while it was in NYC. Take a look at my photos and what I thought – CLICK HERE. This exhibition is different from the one coming to Schenectady but similar.
According to the Times Union, the promoters of this Van Gogh exhibit have finally announced that they will be featuring the upcoming exhibit at the Schenectady Armory. Facebook advertisements were announcing the exhibit coming to Albany but it seems plans have changed.
Tickets went on sale on their website on March 17 starting Thursday, May 26, and are available through August. VIP Admission includes entry to the experience, entry to the VR experience with skip-the-line, and a “Starry Night” poster – which is something I need to try!
