It’s crazy to think it’s almost been 3 years of the Van Gogh Experience in D.C! The immersive exhibit first landed in the capital in 2021, and it was only a few months before it took over the city.
Step inside Rhode Island Center and witness Van Gogh’s prolific work take shape: 360-degree projections and immersive activities plunge you headfirst into some of the world’s most famous pieces of art. The experience takes us on a trip through the mind of the impressionist painter, from his hopes to his deepest inspirations. After over 2 years in D.C., it’s time for the Van Gogh Experience to pack its bags — and you have until January 31st to visit it before it’s gone.
Van Gogh is undoubtedly one of the most talented artists in history. Depicting both the torments and beauty that come with being a creative, Vincent Van Gogh’s oeuvre tells us a lot about who he is. At Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, he unveils himself to us in true immersive fashion.
During an interactive experience featuring 360-degree projections, you’ll get to see every brushstroke and detail of Van Gogh’s most iconic pieces. Sunflowers, Starry Night, Almond Blossom, Tree Roots… the incredible experience recreates the artist’s incredible works in unexpected ways. Every single detail of those paintings takes over the walls, floors and ceilings of Rhode Island Center. Add to that a stunning musical track, and you get a dreamy multisensory voyage like no other.
As you progress through the experience, try your hand at coloring some of Van Gogh’s iconic work. Like the acclaimed artist, you’ll get to leave your mark on the walls of Rhode Island Center (you heard that right: you can hang your own piece of art for the world to see!) And if you’ve ever been curious to see what a day in the life of Vincent Van Gogh actually looks like, you can find out at the VR segment of the exhibit for a small add-on price. Of course, the adventure wouldn’t be complete without a visit at the gift shop — so don’t forget to leave with Van Gogh Experience memorabilia.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is acclaimed both internationally and nationally, gathering over 5 million visitors worldwide. It’s about time you live the experience for yourself before it leaves D.C!
