The works of Van Gogh will soon be brought to life in a new digital art exhibit coming to Music City Feb. 17 – April 17, 2022.
The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit allows guests to walk through moving images that showcase the mesmerizing colors, details and brushstrokes of Van Gogh’s sunny landscapes, vibrant night scenes, portraits and still life paintings.
Nashville’s installation, designed by Italian producer Massimiliano Siccardi, will include the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889) and more of Van Gogh’s masterpieces.
The hour-long, timed entry exhibit will feature towering projections of the paintings organizers say capture the highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness of the post-Impressionist artist.
The exhibit is made up of 500,000 cubic feet worth of projections, 60,600 frames of video, and 90 million pixels. It also has additional COVID-19 safety precautions like social distancing circles on gallery floors and hand sanitizer stations.
Dates and a location have not yet been announced for the Nashville exhibit, but officials say it will make its mark in “the heart of Nashville.”
