An Experience Like No Other:
Prepare to have your senses stimulated like never before. The “Beyond Van Gogh” exhibit is open in Ottawa. I had a chance to get a sneak peek at the attraction on Thursday night, and boy, it did not disappoint.
Getting To Know Vincent:
If you’re not familiar, Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most celebrated post-impressionist artists of all-time. However, he was not as celebrated during his life, gaining fame and acclaim after his passing in 1890. The producers of this exhibit suggested that, “while everyone knows Van Gogh, (this exhibit) gives them a clearer look into Vincent.”
I don’t want to spoil too much about the exhibit, but it is incredible. Through the use of screens and projections, you are fully immersed into Van Gogh’s finest works. The experience is about an hour long, and left me with a feeling of sheer ecstasy. I suggested to a friend that it’s something that might need to be seen more than once to be fully appreciated. Beyond Van Gogh is on until September 16 in the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne. Click here for more information on tickets, times, etc.
