One of the pandemic’s most popular art events is heading to the West Coast.
“Immersive Van Gogh,” a multisensory experience that made its debut in Toronto in July, will open in San Francisco in March and Los Angeles in May. The exhibits will run through the summer.
“Immersive Van Gogh” opened in Chicago earlier this month. After selling out its initial engagement, it extended its stay through September to give more people the chance to walk through famous Van Gogh paintings such as “Irises,” “Sunflowers,” and “Starry Night.”
The exhibit uses music, color, movement, and light to envelop visitors in the artist’s work. It’s meant to present scenes as glimpses of active life set among moving landscapes. Organizers promise a whopping 500,000 cubic feet of projections, including 60,600 video frames set to music.
