Visitors to the exhibition at Skylight on Vesey, 300 Vesey Street, Battery Park, will step into a virtual experience of more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings, dramatically displayed on four-story-high projections, over 15,000 sq ft of projection surface, all made possible by state-of-the-art video mapping technology, coupled with projections on the floor leave the audience the impression of being enveloped in the art. A drawing studio and additional galleries that explore the life, works and techniques of the Artist, create a truly immersive experience that provides its audience with a new, intimate understanding of the post-impressionist genius and his work.

Immersive and educational, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience provides a COVID-safe digital experience and a great day out for adults and children alike. Tickets can be purchased online at www.vangoghexpo.com/new-york

In addition to the four-story tall central projection area, the exhibition also includes a one-of-a-kind VR experience in a separate gallery. This multi-sensory experience guides the viewer through a ten-minute journey on “a day in the life of the artist,” providing a chance to discover the inspiration behind some of his most beloved works, including Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles, and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.

The 360-degree digital art experience will be held in the 30,000 square foot Skylight on Vesey, which is within the New York Mercantile Exchange’s former home at Brookfield Place, in the midst of New York’s financial district.
