Updated 10:13 a.m. on Thursday, April 8: OMFG — confusingly, there are two separate Vincent van Gogh "immersive" events heading to Detroit.
The exhibit, designed by Mathieu St-Arnaudi (not to be confused with the production created by Massimilano Siccardi) has a habit of, well, selling out — unlike van Gogh, who struggled with poverty and, according to popular art lore, allegedly only properly sold one painting during his lifetime. For example, Chicago's immersive van Gogh exhibit is currently sold out through June but will be on display until September.
If you can't Gogh (sorry, we'll stop) to the immersive event, the Detroit Institute of Arts will be hosting its own exhibit, titled “Van Gogh in America,” which will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the DIA's purchase of the artist's 1887 “Self-Portrait,” The Detroit News reports. But that won't be until October, 2022. In the meantime, there's plenty of van Gogh to Gogh around (last one, promise).
There's no need to keep your ears, er, ear to the ground though, as timed and VIP flex tickets are currently available via VanGoghDetroit.com starting at $42.99.
You can take a peek as to what the exhibit looks — and feels like — below.
