The original awe-inspiring Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit will celebrate its grand opening in LA this July 31, 2021, at the iconic former Amoeba Music Building at 6400 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.
The exhibit’s highly anticipated LA opening comes on the heels of massively successful launches in Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco and New York with more than 2 million tickets sold to the original Immersive Van Gogh since its launch in July 2020 making it the most popular attraction currently in North America.
The immersive experience, which counts ‘Emily In Paris’ actress Lily Collins as a fan, brings the life and works of post-impressionist painter, Vincent Van Gogh to life through the renowned creative team which includes Creator and Italian film producer Massimiliano Siccardi, Italian multimedia composer Luca Longobard and David Korins the Emmy award-winning designer who has just signed on as Creative Director for Immersive Van Gogh Los Angeles among other cities.
The production harnesses 60,600 frames of captivating video totaling 90,000,000 pixels and 500,000+ cubic feet of projections, bringing the painter’s masterpieces to life.
“Impact Museums is thrilled to bring this one of a kind experience to life in the heart of Los Angeles where the arts are ingrained in the city’s culture,” says Diana Rayzman, Co-Producer and Co-Founder of Impact Museums. “While Amoeba has since moved locations, their former location will now become an arts and culture center in the heart of Los Angeles featuring a variety of different immersive experiences.”
“Amoeba looks forward to having the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit join the Hollywood arts family. Will be great to see our former home transformed into a new visual and auditory experience!” says Jim Henderson, co-owner, Amoeba Music.
“What makes Immersive Van Gogh so unique and original is that his work surrounds us,” says actress Lily Collins. “For hundreds of years, people would go to art galleries and gaze at works hanging in frames on the wall but the museum envelopes us and frees us to bring our lives and experiences into this new form of creation.”
The San Francisco Chronicle summed it up saying “It’s one hell of a way to wake up from our long pandemic art nap.” The hour-long experience is designed with the highest safety standards and protocols in mind. Capacity will be limited in accordance with local restrictions.
