Beyond Van Gogh, the wildly popular immersive multi-media experience, comes to the Virginia Beach Convention Center tomorrow. The exhibit is sponsored by the Virginia Arts Festival and will run through September 2.
So what is it? Through the use of cutting-edge projection technology and an original score, Beyond Van Gogh breathes new life into over 300 of Van Gogh’s artworks. While other shows use virtual reality or still images, this show breaks barriers by incorporating both still and moving art. Masterpieces, now freed from frames, come alive, appear, and disappear, flow across multi-surfaces, the minutia of details titillating our heightened senses.
“The show is projected on every surface around you,” said show creator Mathieu St-Arnaud. “This makes you feel as though you have stepped directly into a Van Gogh painting.” Occupying over 30,000 square feet, Beyond Van Gogh is the largest immersive experience in the country, offering guests ample room to safely enjoy the exhibit.
Tickets are $40 per person and on sale now.
