Just like many of us, I have been in quarantine for almost a year. I will be taking my first outing to see the U.S. premiere of the art installation Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit Chicago that opens on February 11, 2021. I was invited to attend the exhibit by Carol Fox and Associates Public Relations.
The exhibit is being held at the newly renovated Germania Club Building landmark. The three-story building of Victorian Era architecture with 35-foot tall ceilings and balconies.
The Immersive Van Gogh exhibits Chicago was designed by creative director and Italian film producer Massimiliano Siccardi. Italian multimedia composer Luca Longobardi provided original, mood-setting music that combines experimental electronic music with pure, ethereal, and simple-seeming piano. Vittorio Guidottiis, the Art Director.
Visitors to the exhibit will be encircled from head-to-toe with Van Gogh’s brushstrokes and colors by more than 50 projectors illuminating over 14,000 square-feet.
Including animated details from works such as Sunflowers (1888), The Bedroom in Arles (1889), Irises (1889), and The Starry Night (1889).
Safety measures – reduced capacity, temperature checks for staff and guests on arrival, face coverings required, floor markings throughout the venue to ensure six-foot social distancing
The artwork will be open for viewings from Feb. 11 – September 6, 2021. A new block of tickets will be on sale to purchase on January 30, 2021. The venue is easily accessible by public transportation and has ample parking in the nearby James House parking garage.
