Vincent van Gogh’s paintings are brought to life at this immersive experience in Atlanta. Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience in Atlanta allows you to step inside famous paintings by Van Gogh for an unforgettable digital art experience.
A special thanks to Exhibition Hub for providing us with VIP tickets to Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience! As always, all opinions are my own.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is brought to life by European entertainment producer Exhibition Hub. The exhibit made its North American debut in Atlanta, opening on May 19, 2021.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is finally coming back to Atlanta! It will be showcased at the Exhibition Hub Art Center in Doraville. Tickets are on sale starting May 25, 2023.
The 360-degree digital art experience allows you to step inside Van Gogh paintings to encounter the artworks like never before. The exhibit uses digital projections, light, sound, and virtual reality to bring the artist’s paintings to life.
The new, reimagined experience will feature two immersive rooms, an all-new virtual reality experience, a new soundtrack, and an immersive gallery dedicated to the influence of Japanese art on Van Gogh’s work.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
Your journey begins with a more traditional, museum-like exhibit detailing the life and works of Vincent van Gogh. You’ll read about the artist’s struggles with his mental health and see recreations of his most influential works. The gallery also has larger-than-life 3D recreations of works like “Bedroom in Arles”.
Then you’ll enter the main event — the immersive multi-media experience.
Two-story-tall projections of Van Gogh’s artwork illuminate the walls and floors of the 20,000-square-foot railroad barn. A train travels across the artist’s landscape paintings, almond blossom petals fall from trees stirred by the wind, stars whirl in the night sky, and water flows onto the ground.
Grab a seat on one of the benches or lay back on the plush carpet as you watch the multi-media show go through 400 of the artist’s paintings and sketches.
In the next room, you can experience total immersion in a one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality (VR) interactive experience that guides you through a day in the life of Van Gogh to discover the inspiration behind eight iconic works.
Then, try your hand at coloring your own Van Gogh work of art. Choose from a selection of coloring sheets depicting Van Gogh’s most famous works, add your own artistic flair, and project your artwork onto the wall.
