Beyond Van Gogh is no regular art exhibit – it brings you into the world of Vincent Van Gogh by immersing you into his artwork. The exhibit will be in Calgary from July 30 to August 29, 2021 and the tickets cost $43.99 for adults and $32.99 for children under the age of 15.
Located in the BMO Centre at Stampede Park, this experience takes you through several rooms showcasing more than 300 of Van Gogh’s works through 3-D visuals on several walls within the exhibit. The paintings come to life through projection technology, along with Van Gogh’s dreams, thoughts and words to draw you into his world. The paintings shift across the area, move, melt and even blink.
One of the creators, Sébastien Grenier-Cartier, suggests it is a great family activity. “Kids love these types of experiences and they shouldn’t feel [like] ‘it’s an art exhibit, so it’s not for me.,” he says. “It’s a different perspective on art, and a more contemporary way of looking at it.”
Make sure you get your tickets online before attending as each experience has timed entry and the tickets are going fast.
