Whether you are already a devoted lover of art or just a casual observer, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is likely to capture your imagination in unexpected ways! I’m so thrilled to partner with this creative exhibit to bring you an inside look at what a visit to one of the Texas locations of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience was like for our family.
Our entire family walked away from this experience with so much more understanding of who Vincent Van Gogh was as a person, and why his art was so one of a kind. On our way home, we kept peppering each other with facts we had learned.
“Did you see he was most likely color blind?” “Yes! Did you know he admitted himself into the mental asylum?” Our conversations about this exhibit have lasted well over the last week. Because patrons are able to walk freely through the rooms and read and experience information at their own pace – we all learned about and experienced Van Gogh’s art differently!
Where is the exhibit?
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience Dallas is being hosted at Choctaw Stadium (formerly Globe Life Park), 1090 Ballpark Way, Arlington, TX 76011
If this experience is on your must do list (and I think it should be!) one of the first things worth noting before you visit this exhibit, is that although the location is noted as Dallas – it is actually located right next to Dallas in Arlington, TX.
A fun perk of visiting the experience at this location, is the chance to visit the former home of the Texas Rangers baseball team from 1994-2019. We could see the field and stadium as we entered the exhibit which was fun for the baseball buffs in our party!
What’s a visit to the experience like?
You will enjoy the works of Vincent van Gogh in a completely new way! And be immersed in the artist’s masterpieces at this 360-degree, digital show. You will be surrounded by digital displays, sound effects, projection mapping and more! Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience truly lives up to it’s name. You can physically step inside Van Gogh’s painting, ‘The Bedroom at Arles’ or see a 3D version of his ‘Lobby in the Asylum.’
You can even fly through the countryside of Provence, when you strap on an Oculus VR headset for a virtual reality tour through Van Gogh’s paintings. But without a doubt, the star of the show for my family was the large projection room. We could have stayed there forever.
A Short Video showing our Experience…
This incredibly creative exhibit uses all kinds of learning styles to help bring Van Gogh’s painting and sketches alive for patrons. You will use all of your senses to experience Van Gogh’s art all while learning more about the artist. His flaws, his genius and the hopes he had for both his work and for his life. It’s a very moving experience. And certainly left me with a much bigger appreciation for the art he left the world with.
The Exhibit is currently scheduled to run through November 2021. Visit here, for more things to do in DFW!
