The highly anticipated Van Gogh Exhibit is causing excitement across the nation, as new cities are announced. And now we know that the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Columbus is a GO!
If you’ve watched the Netflix series, Emily in Paris, you may remember the episode with the digital Van Gogh art exhibit. Immersive Van Gogh is created by Massimiliano Siccardi, the same artist behind the exhibit featured on the Netflix series.
With the help of 60,600 frames of video, 90,000,000 pixels, and 500,000+ cubic feet of projections, this captivating digital art exhibit merges state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, and world-class animation. Guests are given the rare opportunity to “step inside” and experience the incredible post-Impressionist works of Van Gogh like never before.
The original Immersive Van Gogh is a spectacular, vivid, and breathtaking digital art experience that invites audiences to enter the legendary works of post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh—evoking his highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement, and imagination.
Featuring stunning towering projections that illuminate the artistic genius’s mind, the exhibition showcases a curated selection of images from Van Gogh’s 2,000+ lifetime catalog of masterpieces, including Les Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), La Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les tournesols (Sunflowers, 1887), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1888). Paintings will be presented how the artist first saw the scenes, based on an active life and moving landscapes turned into sharp yet sweeping brush strokes.
