ST. LOUIS — If you still haven't been able to see the Van Gogh experience in St. Louis, you're in luck!
Due to high demand, “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” will be extending its stay in St. Louis for the third time.
The exhibition will now be featured at the Starry Night Pavilion on the grounds of the Saint Louis Galleria through March 30. More than 150,000 people have seen the exhibition in St. Louis, according to organizers.
“We are thrilled that audiences in St. Louis have responded so positively to Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” Justin Paquin, co-producer with Paquin Entertainment, said the first time it was extended. “We are excited that more Van Gogh fans will be able to see this exhibition.”
Beyond Van Gogh is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. It will also be open on holidays including Martin Luther King Day, Valentine's Day and Presidents Day. The exhibition will be closed on Mondays in January and on Mondays and Tuesdays in February and March.
Four entry times will be available each hour. Ticket prices begin at $33.99 for adults and $19.99 for children ages 5-15. Children younger than 5 are free.
The immersive Van Gogh experience was created by French-Canadian creative director Mathieu St-Arnaud and his team at Montreal’s Normal Studio. It features more than 300 of Vincent Van Gogh’s iconic artworks and takes art lovers into a 3D world that “exhilarates the senses.”
Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
The multimedia experience uses cutting-edge projection technology developed by some of the world’s greatest AV designers, organizers explained in a news release.
Using Van Gogh’s dreams, thoughts and words to drive the narrative of the experience, guests move along projection-swathed walls wrapped in light and color that refocuses into flowers, cafes and landscapes. While moving through the experience, guests will see classics like “The Starry Night,” “Sunflowers” and “Café Terrace at Night.”
“Van Gogh’s art comes to life by appearing and disappearing, flowing across multiple surfaces, and heightening the senses with their immense detail,” the release stated. “Through his own words set to a symphonic score, guests come to a new appreciation of this tortured artist’s stunning work.”
Beyond Van Gogh will be in St. Louis for a limited time before moving across North America.
