360-degree, large-scale digital art experience offering visitors total immersion in Van Gogh to be held at the iconic Olympia Theater in Downtown Miami
/PRNewswire/ — Entertainment producer Exhibition Hub and Fever, the leading entertainment discovery platform, announced today the debut of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience at Olympia Theater, Downtown Miami’s historic performing arts center opening on June 10.
The 360-degree digital art experience will be held in one of South Florida’s cultural gems, which sits proudly on Downtown Miami’s busiest intersection at Flagler Street and 2nd Avenue. Just minutes away from the beautiful waterfront and the cosmopolitan Brickell City Centre, the restored circa-1926 silent movie theater is one of Miami’s most beloved arts and entertainment venues in the hub of all the cultural excitement the area has to offer.
Visitors to the exhibition in the enchanting Olympia Theater are invited to step into more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings by using floor-to-ceiling digital projections, made possible by state-of-the-art video mapping technology.
The exhibition includes a one-of-a-kind VR experience in a separate gallery. This multi-sensory experience guides the viewer through a ten-minute journey on “a day in the life of the artist,” providing a chance to discover the inspiration behind some of his most beloved works including Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
A drawing studio and additional galleries that explore the life, works and techniques of Van Gogh, create a truly immersive experience that provides its audience with a new, intimate understanding of the Post-Impressionist genius and his work.
