Traveling exhibit allows you to step inside Van Gogh paintings

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A popular new exhibit seen by more than 2 million visitors in Paris will be making its way to Charlotte this summer.

The “Immersive Van Gogh” digital experience features the art of Vincent Van Gogh, from his sunny landscapes and night scenes to his portraits and still life paintings, projected over 500,000 cubic feet.

Guests can wander through entrancing, moving images that highlight the brushstrokes, detail and color of each piece.

The installation will include works such as the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers) and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom) among many others.

To help keep guests safe, COVID protocols will include reduced capacity, temperature checks upon arrival, touchless hand sanitization stations placed throughout the venue and face masks or coverings will be required.

In addition, social distancing circles will be projected throughout the entire exhibition gallery space to help ensure that all guests have enough space to safely enjoy the experience.

The show will run from June 18 to Sept. 12 in Camp North End‘s historic Ford Building.
