Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.” – Banksy

Vincent van Gogh Immersive Exhibitions Coming to US

Created by Grande Experiences, Van Gogh Alive has been presented in over 50 countries so far, giving visitors in Europe, Asia, and Australia the magical experience of this multi-sensory exhibition. Now, the United States finally gets to enjoy this 360-degree experience.

The images are synchronized to a beautiful classical score.  It immerses visitors in the vibrant colors and vivid details that constitute the artist’s unique style, while aromas are infused throughout the air so that museum-goers can literally stop and smell the sunflowers. How cool is that!

5 Shows To Choose From

There are five traveling shows to choose from. While each of the shows is distinct, they are similar in that they place visitors in the middle of large-scale moving images that are projected onto the surrounding gallery or warehouse walls, ceilings, and floors.

1. Immersive Van Gogh

Immersive Van Gogh features more than 500,000 cubic feet of projections and lasts one hour. Expect to see iconic van Gogh works including The Potato Eaters (1885), Starry Night (1889), Sunflowers (1888), and The Bedroom (1889). In this show, the large-scale digital animations are set to original songs composed by Italian multimedia composer Luca Longobardi.

The show is currently open in Chicago and San Francisco, with upcoming events in 16 other cities in the next few months. In a review in the Chicago Tribune, arts reporter Steve Johnson likened it to an “updated version” of those 1970s Pink Floyd laser light shows at a planetarium.

Tickets are sold by timed entry and are going quickly (the L.A. show is sold out through the end of September 2021 already). Social distancing circles are projected on the floor of the gallery to give guests their own space during their visit.

This show is showing in:

  • Chicago
  • San Francisco
  • Los Angeles
  • New York
  • Dallas
  • Charlotte
  • Las Vegas
  • Phoenix
  • Minneapolis
