Vincent Van Gogh and his stunning works of art, including Starry Night, At Eternity’s Gate, and The Harvest, along with his various self-portraits are viewed in museums around the world, taught to schoolchildren everywhere, and are beloved and cherished as integral parts of history.

Designed by Artistic Director Massimiliano Siccardi, the exhibit invites visitors to step into a massive gallery filled with enormous, crisp, high-definition projections of Van Gogh’s most famous works. Throughout the hour-long program, various types of music play to accompany each piece curated by composer Luca Longobardi. It’s sure to be Van Gogh like you’ve never experienced him before.

Both connoisseurs and new admirers of Van Gogh’s work are guaranteed a breathtaking perspective on the influential artist’s oeuvre. 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.”
