Out-of-this-world immersive exhibit coming to Charlotte

CHARLOTTE — A new out-of-this-world exhibit is coming to Charlotte this fall.

Blumenthal Arts announced on Monday it will host a new immersive exhibit at its new space in the Iron District, formerly home of Charlotte Pipe and Foundry outside of Uptown.

The new experience is called “Space Explorers: The Infinite.”

The exhibit is inspired by NASA missions aboard the International Space Station and visitors can use virtual reality to experience 360-degree videos captured in space.

“People want to see themselves in the whole experience,” said Tom Gabbard, CEO of Blumenthal Arts. “They want to touch, they want to feel, they want to see themselves in it. They want to be with their friends in it.”

Blumenthal hopes the new immersive experience will be as successful as its previous immersive Van Gogh exhibit, which sold more than 300,000 tickets.

“Space Explorers: The Infinite” opens on Sept. 20 and runs through Nov. 10. The exhibit is open to adults and children ages 8 years old and older.

Tickets are on sale now and prices start at $29.95. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
