If, like us, you were feeling down about the Van Gogh experience closing, here is some great news: the exhibit reoped! Since its arrival in the city, the breathtaking experience has charmed many Seattleites, with some visitors describing the exhibit as “absolutely incredible” and “a life changing experience.” It comes as no surprise then, to see the exhibit open once more — plunging us into the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh.
During this exciting exhibit at 1750 Occidental Ave, you’ll get to unpack what it means to be Van Gogh. 360-degree projectors and lights transport you into the world of the artist, challenging what you think you know about the post-impressionist painter. Every detail of his most prized works comes to life, from the awe-inspiring ‘Starry Night’ to ‘Sunflower’ — presenting a fuller story, one that recounts the life of one of history’s most talented artists.
One must write it as it is: Van Gogh is the pioneer of the selfie. During his artistic career, he produced over 40 self portraits, each as different as the next. The post-impressionist painter has time and time again set the blueprint for self portraiture, taking us on a journey through his deepest joys and pains.
But have you ever wondered what went through his mind at the time? Whether you’re staring at the gloomy “Self Portrait with Pipe – 1886” or the more vibrant “Self Portrait with a Straw Hat – 1887”, the colors and feel of each portrait varies, recounting a different story each time.
The Van Gogh exhibit proposes a stunning VR journey for those who’d like to learn more about the artist. For an add-on price, step into Van Gogh’s world and experience a day in the life of the artist who famously noted:
