If you’ve ever wanted to step inside a living painting, this is your chance! The original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit NYC will be the biggest immersive Van Gogh experience in the world – housed in the 700,000 sqft Pier 36 in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
It will also boast custom-designed experiential elements that will make it a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Lily Collins, the actor playing Emily in the Netflix series, recently visited the original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit Chicago, and posted about the experience on Instagram: “It was the most incredible way to connect to the iconic paintings!”
If you want to experience the art of Vincent van Gogh like never before, you cannot miss out on Immersive Van Gogh New York City.
The creator of the original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit New York City is Italian installation artist Massimiliano Siccardi, whose work was seen by over 2 million visitors in Paris and was featured on Netflix’s ‘Emily in Paris’. Siccardi has been called “the Steven Spielberg of these immersive art installations” – and with good reason. His vision brings the works of Van Gogh to life like no other. (Although others have tried.)
Apart from the mesmerizing visuals, Immersive Van Gogh NYC also features a sweeping soundtrack curated by Italian composer and pianist, Luca Longobardi. Longobardi also composed original music for the immersive art installation.
The visuals and music come together to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience that transports visitors. You get to see the vibrant colors and bold brushstrokes Van Gogh is famous for on a jaw-dropping scale as you wander through his masterpieces like The Potato Eaters (1885), Starry Night (1889), Sunflowers (1889), and many more!
On top of the immersive art experience, the New York City venue, Pier 36, boasts spectacular experiential and visual elements created by Emmy Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated designer David Korins, known for his set designs featured in numerous Broadway hits including ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Dear Evan Hansen’.
“I am thrilled to be collaborating with the creative minds behind the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit to create a truly unique experience for the city of New York to enjoy and be inspired by,” said Korins. “I have always been deeply moved when looking at Van Gogh’s paintings, which are universally beloved for their color and unique use of texture, or his transcendent ink drawings, and I’m humbled by the opportunity to develop an experience that will enhance the viewers’ time spent with his powerful art.”
