Stand inside some of the world's most famous works.
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to literally be in some of your favorite artwork? Well, wonder no more because you will be getting the chance sometime in 2021.
Immersive Van Gogh will be making a stopover in Denver this year, offering a safe, immersive experience for art lovers.
The exhibit, designed and conceived by Massimiliano Siccardi, with a soundtrack by Luca Longobardi, who both pioneered immersive digital art events in France, features 500,000 cubic feet of monumental projections that will literally put you into a moving world of art. It features 60,600 frames of video and 90,000 pixels to create an experience like no other. While it doesn't feature actual works by Van Gogh, the digital re-creations will give you a unique view into some of his most known pieces.
"Wander through entrancing, moving images that highlight brush strokes, detail, and color – truly illuminating the mind of the genius," said the DenverVanGogh.com. "You will be immersed in Van Gogh’s works – from his sunny landscapes and night scenes to his portraits and still life paintings. The installation includes the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889), and so much more."
Because we are still in a pandemic, the exhibit will be requiring social distancing, as well as masks for all involved. According to its website, staff have increased sanitization protocols and will be abiding by reduced capacity guidelines.
So far, the event appears to be offering presale tickets for late September/early October (which appear to be sold out), and the venue that will host it hasn't been announced, other than to say it will be in a "historic" spot in Denver. The tour will also be stopping over in other large metro areas, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Toronto, and more.
