Similar to the kind seen in Paris, the projections will surround you with the great artist's works.
Some great news for art lovers in Detroit as you can soon get to experience Van Gogh's magic right in your city. Previously, you would have to visit faraway places like Paris, or at least Toronto, or even Chicago to get immersed into the legend's fine works. However, it has just been announced that an "Immersive van Gogh" exhibit is coming to the Michigan metropolis this summer. We are still waiting for news of the venue's location, as well as the exact dates on when the event is going to take place.

So far, we have confirmation that Detroit's "Immersive van Gogh" will play host to more than 500,000 cubic feet of projections, 60,000 frames of video, and 90,000,000 pixels. These are projections that are specifically designed to envelop you in van Gogh's artwork. You can wander through every detail and color in a way you have never dreamed of before. There are various sunny landscapes and blissful night scenes to his portraits and life paintings that will have you gasping in awe.

This particular installation of the "Immersive van Gogh" is going to include the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889), along with more famous works of van Gogh. The mastermind of this exhibition is Massimiliano Siccardi, an Italian installation artist whose work was seen by over 2 million visitors in Paris. Furthermore, his work was also featured on Episode 5 of the popular Netflix show "Emily In Paris'. The soundtrack for the exhibition is created by Luca Longobardi.

“Both connoisseurs and new admirers of van Gogh’s work are guaranteed a breathtaking perspective on the influential artist’s oeuvre,” said Siccardi. “Merging state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, animation and some of the finest works of art ever created, Immersive van Gogh is a uniquely mesmerizing experience that seemingly transports the viewer into the artist’s mind to see these timeless works as never before.”

Not only is it a first-of-its-kind in Detroit, but it's not a recurring event so you may not know when it might happen again.

There are a lot of reviews about the "Immersive van Gogh" on their official Facebook page. One person wrote of the Toronto experience: "Fantastic experience- the staff made this a superb experience. They were considerate, professional and very helpful. The show was great. We took a 5-year-old and 20 month old and they loved it. Thank you for this wonderful adventure". Another added: "This is a very informative unique, and creative, visual of Van Gogh’s artwork. We thoroughly enjoyed it and wished it was longer ."
