Travelers have begun dusting off their luggage in anticipation of experiencing the sights and sounds of the world, albeit under a mask.
And while being forced to wear a mask is a big deterrent to take to the air, there may be a unique opportunity worth complying for.
An experience that will tantalize every sense – and take you to a time long before the existence of Big Brother.
You may not love art enough to take the family to The Louvre in Paris, even if they are begging for tourists, or spend a month’s salary on staying at a hotel that’s designed as a literal piece of art – but you will love this.
Dutch post-impressionist painter, Vincent Van Gogh, painted some of the most iconic works of art in the world.
The Museum of Modern Art in NYC proudly houses Van Gogh’s most popular piece, “Starry Night,” but if you want to see it, you’ll have to take (and pay for) a ridiculous amount of coronavirus tests just to enter the state.
Much of Van Gogh’s additional art stands at the official Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, but you can only take a virtual tour because of travel restrictions.
But we have something even better!
How would you like to not just view his work, but actually step inside it?
Now you can!
Multi-sensory exhibits are the hottest thing to come onto the art scene and now you can experience one right here in the United States.
This June, the Indianapolis Museum of Art will be displaying The Lume where the entire 4th floor will be transformed into a 360-degree interactive experience of Van Gogh’s work.
Nearly 150 hi-def projectors will cover 35,000 square-feet of space.
Imagine standing on the table with the iconic vase of sunflowers in Van Gogh’s Sunflower.
Or walking along the flower’s stem, gazing up at the rich petals above your head.
Interactive art is a revolutionary way to bring old pieces to new life, inspiring younger generations to experience the passion and awe of Van Gogh’s work.
If you can’t make it to Indianapolis, the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit produced by Lighthouse Immersive will be showing at San Francisco’s SVN West beginning in March.
Masterpieces such as Les Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), La Nuit etoilee (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889) will be featured.
Walking through this exhibit will bring to life every emotion the talented, yet troubled, artist must have felt as he created these historic pieces of art.
Even scents and aromas linger in the air to heighten the senses, immersing you in a fully sensual experience.
This is truly a unique opportunity that will inspire your love for the arts in an entirely new way.
