“Immersive Van Gogh” a chance to dive into painter’s works

MIDDLETON, Wis. — An exhibit featuring the work of famous painter Vincent Van Gogh is open in Middleton for the next several weeks.

“The Immersive Van Gogh” opened on Thanksgiving at the Greenway Shopping Center. The exhibit is on a nationwide tour, allowing audiences to step inside the works of the 19th-century artist.

Giant screens and projectors are used to make Van Gogh’s artwork seem larger-than-life, and let you feel like you’re a part of his canvas. Organizers said the exhibit is an experience for everyone.

“We think this opens up a whole new world and it’s a great way to introduce kids to the art world,” Nick Harkin said. “This experience gets them to love art.”

The exhibit takes about 35 minutes to complete. The exhibit will be in town through Jan. 8. You can find more info on the exhibit’s website by clicking here.
