Feel Like You Are Stepping Into a Van Gogh Painting in Boston Exhibit
They don't call it immersive for nothing!
It's been a year, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel of this long hard pandemic. Sure that light dims at times, but 2022 has got to be better, right? According to Boston Magazine, one thing you can do to make 2022 start cool is mega-size versions of Vincent Van Gogh paintings.
In Boston now until March 2022 is Imagine Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience. There are over a dozen exhibits around the world. Luckily, Boston is one of the destinations. A lot easier to get to Boston than Buenos Aires. In this exhibit, Van Gogh’s art comes alive in 360-degree, two-story projections on over 20,000 square feet of space. And the paintings will move! With each of his famous work, it is not stagnant, but alive.
According to Imagine Van Gogh, this is what you can expect:
Imagine Van Gogh highlights the works of Vincent Van Gogh from his Arles period (1888-1889) to the end of his life in 1890. These were exceptional years for the master, showcasing his talent, as well as his torments, in iconic works such as Sunflowers, Irises, Wheatfield with Crows, The Starry Night, in addition to his Japanese influences with the magnificent Almond Blossoms or his later The Church at Auvers. It also incorporates the many portraits painted during this period, including his Self-Portraits, Portrait of Dr. Gachet, La Mousmé, Portrait of the Postman Joseph Roulin and L’Arlésienne: Madame Ginoux. Altogether, an incredible number of Van Gogh’s masterpieces will be revealed to visitors from a completely new perspective.
This is a kick-ass way of starting off 2022! Tickets are available now.
