Van Gogh and art lovers take note of this. Immersive Van Gogh is coming to San Francisco.
The brand new, visually striking exhibition, inviting audiences to step into the most incredible works of post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, opens on March 18 at SVN West in San Francisco (South Van Ness and Market St.).
“The reception we received from ticket buyers in the San Francisco Bay Area was enthusiastic and welcoming,” said Corey Ross, co-producer of Lighthouse Immersive. “Despite the setbacks and challenges of COVID-19 over the past year, one thing is clear: the arts will return stronger than ever in 2021! We look forward to welcoming the audience through our doors from March onwards. “
The exhibition shows a modern combination of light and music including projection to immerse the viewer in the world of Van Gogh’s famous works. According to the publication:
Created by legendary pioneers of immersive digital art experiences around the world, Immersive Van Gogh invites audiences to “step inside” van Gogh’s iconic works and evoke their highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement and fantasy . Using the unique architecture of SVN West and over 500,000 cubic feet of projections, the exhibition features stunning projections illuminating Van Gogh’s over 2,000 life catalogs of masterpieces, including Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889 ), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888) and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889). His pictures are presented as the artist first saw the scenes on which they are based: active life and moving landscapes that become sharp but far-reaching brushstrokes.
Immersive Van Gogh first premiered in Toronto in July 2020 and has since been seen by more than 180,000 people.
According to Lighthouse Immersive, the operator of the venue, the exhibition in San Francisco has already been expanded and runs until Monday, September 6, 2021.

Let’s all hope this is the tip of the iceberg as the San Francisco arts scene returns to a (new) normal during 2021 as the COVID-10 vaccine rollout continues.
