360-degree, large-scale digital art experience offering visitors total immersion in Van Gogh to open on October 6 at Strand Theatre
Entertainment producer Exhibition Hub and Fever, the leading entertainment discovery platform, announced that Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience opens on Wednesday, October 6 at Strand Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts.
Following successful launches in Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Miami, Philadelphia, and Washington DC, that collectively welcomed more than 1,300,000 guests during their opening weeks, the experience will now open to visitors in Boston, before continuing its tour across the globe.
The 360-degree digital art experience will be held at the home to all kinds of entertainment, from music (Tracey Chapman and BB King among others) and music video shooting (Aerosmith, New Kids on the Block) to well-known theatre productions such as Jesus Christ Superstar and West Side Story.
In the exhibition, visitors will step into more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings through the use of floor-to-ceiling digital projections, made possible by state-of-the-art video mapping technology.
The exhibition also includes a one-of-a-kind VR experience in a separate gallery. This multi-sensory experience guides the viewer through a ten-minute journey on “a day in the life of the artist,” providing a chance to discover the inspiration behind some of Van Gogh’s most beloved and iconic works, including Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
A drawing studio and additional galleries that explore the life, works and techniques of Van Gogh offer a new, intimate understanding of the Post-Impressionist genius and his work.
Immersive and educational, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience provides a COVID-safe digital experience and family-friendly activity for adults and children alike. Tickets are on sale now and start from $34.90 for adults and $19.90 for children.
All ticket holders will also receive access to the interactive landing page here, enhancing the edutainment experience, allowing guests to explore the story behind the exhibit and enjoy online activities. These include 360º panoramas, created from Van Gogh artworks that allow you to explore the surroundings and environment of Van Gogh himself; visual trivia that can be answered from the information and fun facts that appear on the website; and a “download” section with templates of Van Gogh’s main artworks to color.
