Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, a 20,000 square foot light and sound spectacular featuring two-story projections of the artist’s most compelling works, is coming to New Orleans in April. The event will take place at a location that is yet to be announced. 

This experience is a 360-degree, immersive digital art experience, brought to life by Exhibition Hub and Fever. It allows visitors to take an awe-inspiring journey into the incomparable universe of Vincent van Gogh, one of history’s foremost artistic geniuses, bringing an educational experience through murals, monographics and text about the life of Van Gogh and his most famous works.

The VR element is a multi-sensory experience that guides the viewer through a 10-minute journey on “A Day in the Life of the Artist in Arles,” that provides insight into the inspiration behind some of Van Gogh’s most beloved works, including Vincent’s Bedroom in Arles, Starry Night, Wheatfield with Crows, and Starry Night Over the Rhone River, to name a few. 

Barco’s visual display technology allows visitors to step into a virtual experience featuring more than 400 of Van Gogh’s iconic sketches, drawings, and paintings dramatically displayed four-stories-high on over 30,000-square-feet of projection surface.

In addition to the visual component of his works, the show also provides a deeper understanding of the artist and his inspiration by providing key historical moments that chronicles his life, technique, and influence through informative panels. At the end of the tour, visitors are also able to channel their inner Van Gogh and create a masterpiece of their own to project onto one of the very large screens in the Drawing Room, designed to inspire creativity.

Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will be open to all ages. This rare and cutting-edge experience is the perfect discovery for couples as well as larger groups, for individuals and for the whole family. The experience lasts 60 to 75 minutes.
