From scenic landscapes to whimsical night skies, get ready to be transported straight into a Van Gogh painting as the famous artist’s digital exhibit, “Immersive Van Gogh” hits Chicago next month. 

The same creative team that awed millions of viewers in Paris and Toronto with the high-tech digital art show now has plans to bring the magic to Chicago’s Germania Club (Old Town) beginning Feb. 11.  

Over 50 digital projectors will illuminate 500,000 cubic feet of projections showcasing several of Van Gogh’s world-famous masterpieces: “The Potato Eaters,” “Starry Night,” “Sunflowers” and “The Bedroom,” just to name a few. 

With touchless ticketing and mandated face masks, the exhibition will abide by Chicago’s social distancing procedures while still allowing visitors to immerse themselves in this dreamy experience. 

Good news for art fanatics

Fans of the exhibit can look forward to the artful future as the Germania Club signed a contract with the European creators behind the operation, Immersive Art Space LP, who will use the name Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago for the use of future digital art shows, according to a press release. The exhibition will also include a cafe and gift shop experience for guests.
