Merging state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, animation and some of the finest works of art ever created, 'Immersive Van Gogh' is a uniquely mesmerizing experience that seemingly transports the viewer into the artist’s mind to see these timeless works as never before," Immersive ArtSpace co-producer Corey Ross said.
The exhibit includes illuminating projectors and Van Gogh's "head-to-toe brushstrokes" with animated details from his renowned works of art including "Self Portrait with Felt Hat" and "Starry Night."
The hour-long walk-through experience includes several additional safety measures such as touchless ticket-taking, temperature checks, hand sanitizer stations and social distancing markers. The venue said all visitors must still wear a mask throughout the exhibit.
