Immersive Van Gogh Exhibitions Coming to Boston
You can feel like you are stepping right into a Van Gogh painting.
It's been a year, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel of this long hard pandemic. According to Boston Magazine, one thing at the end of that tunnel is mega-size versions of Vincent Van Gogh paintings.
Coming to Boston in 2021 are two immersive Van Gogh exhibition:. Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience in September and the second Imagine Van Gogh, in December.
Imagine Van Gogh has been selling out for the past year in Canada. There will be 24,000 square feet of floor-to-ceiling screens with more than 200 of Van Gogh's works. This is at the SoWa Power Station in the South End. The art is projected on screens for a brand new extreme closeup perspective. The goal is to feel like you are in the painting.
The other experience is Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience with over a dozen exhibits around the world. And even though they are selling tickets, no word on where the heck it is! Apparently it will be announced in the next few weeks.
But at this point, something new and fun and exciting and cultural in September - who cares where it is! That's what Uber is for.
Wherever it is, in this exhibit, Van Gogh’s art comes to live in 360-degree, two-story projections on over 20,000 square feet of space. And the paintings will move! With each of his famous work, it is not stagnant, but alive.
No one really knows why Van Gogh is all of a sudden so popular, but at this point...I think I'd look at your kids refrigerator art projected in an exhibit in Boston.
