A similar projection exhibition by van Gogh is on view at the Indianapolis Museum of Art in Newfields through May 2022.

Step into the spirit of Vincent van Gogh in this popular traveling art exhibit coming to Cincinnati in June.

Discover the art of the famous Dutch post-impressionist painter in 360-degree projections, giant screens and virtual reality at Van Gogh: the immersive experience.

The venue for the exhibit has not been announced and, according to the event’s website, is currently under wraps.

This digital exhibit features 20,000 square feet of a “sound and light show” that features eight of van Gogh’s most popular creations such as “Vincent’s Bedroom” and “Starry Night.”

There will also be an experience using virtual reality headsets that will send you to another world on a 10-minute guided journey through “a day in the life of an artist”, where you will join van Gogh on his quest to find the inspiration behind some of his most famous works.

Tickets, which start at $34.90 for adults and $19.90 for children, go on sale this Friday, December 10, and can be purchased on the event website or you can join the list waiting here.

Visitors should expect to spend approximately 60-75 minutes in the exhibit.
This immersive experience is similar to others touring the country, including one currently on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art in Newfields (until May 2022).

The exhibits create complete multi-sensory indoor environments by combining the latest digital technologies with images recreated from van Gogh’s paintings.

ART news traces the sudden US demand for these shows to the inclusion of a van Gogh-themed Parisian extravaganza at the Atelier des Lumières in a 2020 episode of Netflix Emily in Paris. In Europe in particular, light art and digital art have been sources of innovation and spectacle, much like the way Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil has developed new circuses.

The one coming to Cincinnati is from partners Exhibition Hub and Fever.
