Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will open in York St Mary’s on Castlegate on 5 July, enabling visitors to step inside the paintings, world and mind of the 19th century impressionist painter.
The multimedia experience tells Van Gogh’s life and his creations through projections, recreations and interactive elements of his artworks around the historic exhibition space. Over 200 of his works are featured, but rather than remaining static, the huge projections of paintings come alive with digital animation and an emotive soundtrack, to create a world where the visitor sees through the eyes of Vincent Van Gogh for a 35 minute, fully immersive 360 degree experience.
The exhibition will open on 5 July and is scheduled to run through until 5 January 2020. It will open daily throughout the summer from 10.00am, closing at 6pm Sunday to Wednesday, 7pm on Friday and Saturday and 8pm on Thursdays. Last entry is one hour before closing, and visits take approximately one hour. York St Mary’s is located in Castlegate, with easy access from the Coppergate Centre, adjacent to JORVIK Viking Centre.
Pre-booked tickets go on sale on Tuesday 11 June. Admission prices are £13.00 for adults, £11.00 for concessions and students and £9.00 for children. Family tickets are available for £38.00 (two adults and two children). For more information, please visit www.vangoghexpo.co.uk
