There are some artists whose work is so unique that they continue to stand out generation after generation.
Vincent van Gogh is one of these artists.
The Immersive van Gogh exhibit in New York City opened last month. Taking Van Gogh’s painting from the canvas to the screen, the visitor is surrounded by his work using animation, music, and three large rooms with plenty of space to take it all in.
I’m not a huge fan of traditional painting or any painting for that matter. Most art museums frankly bore me. I certainly appreciate the multimedia aspect of this exhibition. It brought his work to life in a way that at least made me stop and really take it in.
My problem was that I found it underwhelming. After sitting down for about an hour, I found that I was bored. There was only so much one could ooh and ah over. It is also a bit of sensory overload that could overwhelm some people. It was not long before I was ready to call it a day.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit will be at 299 South Street in New York City until January 2, 2022.
