Most of us are familiar with a few paintings done by Van Gogh. Whether it’s his Starry Night or his Sunflowers series, Van Gogh’s art is meshed with our culture.
Earlier this summer, I visited Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience with two of my friends. It was breathtaking and awe-inspiring! Imagine stepping into a 20,000-square-foot lights and sounds exhibit featuring two-story projections of his most captivating works.
Even though I took an Art History class in college, there was so much that I learns about Van Gogh in this exhibit. There’s something to be said about seeing the artwork in person, whether it’s in an immersive art experience such as this or in a museum. When you take things in visually, it’s different from just reading about it in a book.
After walking through all of the galleries, we came towards the end where you could participate in a VR Experience. NOTE: VIP Admission includes entry to the immersive experience, entry to the VR experience and a poster from the gift shop.
Near the VR experience and gift shop is the studio where you can make your own artwork and have them displayed on the wall. If I ever came back again, I know my daughter would love this part of the experience!
My friends and I loved visiting this exhibit! It’s a great way to introduce art to people of all ages.
