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.
Now, Art lovers can quite literally step inside Van Gogh’s most famous paintings thanks to a new exhibit, Immersive Van Gogh.

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.

“Immersive Van Gogh is a new way of encountering art, as it quite literally surrounds viewers on all sides with the brilliant work of one of the greatest painters of all time. 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.”
The exhibition is designed for safety, ensuring social distancing, and requiring masks for visitors.
