  • About Immersive Van Gogh Chicago

    The U.S. premiere of the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit from the creators of the blockbuster exhibit seen by over 2 million visitors in Paris. Be immersed in 500,000 cubic feet of stunning projection animating the master’s oeuvre and illuminating the mind of the genius. Wander through giant projections that highlight brushstroke, detail, and colour as you have never experienced them. Visitors will be immersed in Van Gogh’s works from his sunny landscapes and night scenes, to his portraits and still life. The installation includes his work Les Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885) to La Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889). The exhibition is custom-designed specifically for the stunning Lighthouse Artspace Chicago, a new venue within Chicago’s recently renovated landmark Germania Club Building. The three-story facility is dedicated to immersive art presentations, merging the boundaries between entertainment and culture to give visitors the sense that they are encountering art as never before. Utilizing the building’s Victorian Era architectural details, 35-foot-tall walls and multiple levels (including balconies), the venue will present vibrant art exhibitions that surround the viewer on all sides.  Experience the organic landscapes of Van Gogh’s imagination, and ride the rollercoaster of Van Gogh’s descent into madness. It is astonishing in scale, breathtakingly imaginative, and a completely new look at the master’s work.
