Are you ready to experience art beyond the walls of a museum? Los Angeles has plenty of fabulous museums, with the Getty Center at the top of the list for preeminent art exhibits, and if you’re looking for something beyond the typical observation approach to art, the Immersive Van Gogh experience is calling.
Set in the iconic, former Amoeba Music building on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, Lighthouse Los Angeles has delivered a whole new approach to experiencing the impressionist master’s art and life. The presentation of this multiple decade collaboration of Massimiliano Siccardi and Luca Longobardi, world-renowned masters of digital art and sound, has been enhanced by the creative genius of David Korins, set designer for “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Hamilton.”
Viewers will become immersed in Van Gogh’s life, drawings and paintings curated by 64 projectors animating Van Gogh’s paintings across a 500,000 cubic foot “canvas” of walls and floor with accompanying music score. Though not a lengthy experience – about 35 minutes – it’s educational, deeply interpretive and definitely beautiful.
