Description

Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is a 360-degree, 20,000-square-foot digital art exhibition that invites you to step into the universe of the Dutch genius, Vincent van Gogh, brought to you by the organizers of a collection of widely successful exhibitions present in cities across Europe, Asia and the Americas. The experience includes digital displays, sound effects, and projection mapping.

Location:
Held at the newly renamed Choctaw Stadium, formerly Globe Life Park and former home of the Texas Rangers baseball team until their move to Globe Life Field nearby.

Extra rooms: The exhibit dedicates a space for the digital art study of the flowers painted by Van Gogh, where you'll watch a 5-minute documentary that provides insight into Van Gogh’s painting techniques. Another room consists in the reconstruction of Van Gogh’s masterpiece “The Bedroom.” The visitors can read many informative panels about the artist’s life and work along the way. Last but not least, the Colour & Post space awakens visitors’ creativity and allows them to produce and display their own masterpieces.

Virtual reality experiences:
At the end of the exhibition, the VR experience slips the visitors even deeper into the mind of Van Gogh by experiencing a day in his life. During an 10-minute one-of-a-kind experience with a VR headset, you'll travel through 8 works and their source of inspiration in "A Day in the Life of the Artist in Arles France." Walk alongside Van Gogh during this peaceful, visually rich journey to discover the inspiration behind eight of his iconic works, including: "Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles," and "Starry Night Over the Rhone River."

Staff will limit the number of headsets used simultaneously. Note that visitors must wear a mask in this area as well. Each visitor will receive a disposable mask for the eyes (to avoid contact between the skin and the goggles), and staff will disinfect the VR equipment and chairs after each use.
