Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
06/10/2022 - 02/26/2023
NOTE: Newly announced, running until end of November
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience provides a new, and exciting, entertainment option in the Capital Region. Visitors will be able to step into more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings by using floor-to-ceiling digital projections, made possible by state-of-the-art video mapping technology.
As well as the two-story tall central projection area, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, also includes a one-of-a-kind VR experience in a separate gallery. This multi-sensory experience guides the viewer through a journey on “a day in the life of the artist,” providing a chance to discover the inspiration behind some of Van Gogh’s most beloved works including Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles, and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
A drawing studio and additional galleries that explore the life, works and techniques of Van Gogh, create a truly immersive experience that provides its audience with a new, intimate understanding of the post-impressionist genius and his work.
Planning for Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience began in 2016, and it first premiered in a cathedral in Naples, Italy in November of 2018. Since then, Exhibition Hub has presented the experience in multiple European cities and across the United States. The experience saw over two million visitors in 2021 and was voted 2nd in USA Today’s Reader Choice Award as ‘Best New Attraction’.
