As if simply stepping out of the house wasn’t dramatic enough, producers of a new exhibition want you to walk right into the colorfully swirling brushstrokes of Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. Immersive Van Gogh promises to surround its socially distanced audiences with 300,000 cubic feet of floor-to-ceiling video projections re-creating the master impressionist’s groundbreaking paintings on a grand scale. Other works depicted include The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers and The Bedroom.
The exhibit has engulfed more than 2 million viewers in Paris, where it originated. Now “Immersive Van Gogh” is rolling out across almost a dozen U.S. cities, including Dallas, June 17-Sept. 6, at a venue to be announced. $40-$100. Details: dallasvangogh.com. Meanwhile, a competing show, “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” is scheduled to arrive in Dallas in August.
