It’s all part of Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, which has sold over 3 million tickets globally making it one of the most popular current traveling exhibitions. The sensory extravaganza will open at RBC Convention Centre on July 14. Open for a limited engagement, Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience was created by French-Canadian Creative Director Mathieu St-Arnaud and his team at Montreal’s world-renowned Normal Studio.
While journeying through Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience guests witness more than 300 iconic masterpieces, including such instantly recognizable classics as “The Starry Night,” “Sunflowers,” and “Café Terrace at Night,” as well as many revealing self-portraits. Prices start at $28.99 for adults and $23.99 for children, plus ticketing fees. This world-renowned art experience will be open for a limited-time. Tickets, which will sell out quickly, are on sale now at vangoghwinnipeg.com.
Guests are transported into Van Gogh’s world through an all new, exclusively designed space comprised of three areas that segue fluidly into each other. The Education Room leads into the unique Waterfall Room which flows into the Immersive Experience Room. Freed from their frames, Van Gogh’s spectacular paintings appear on projection-swathed walls inviting guests to fully immerse themselves into the incredible detail of his work and be enveloped in his ever-shifting, swirling and colourful flowers, cafes and stunning landscapes.
And, hearing the artist’s own dreams, thoughts and words set to a symphonic score drives an unmatched narrative experience.
