The "Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience" is coming to the Capital Region late spring into the summer months. This is a 360-degree immersion into the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. It has toured the world and over two million people have viewed this amazing experience. Soon it will be our turn.
What is the "Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience"?
The expo is a one-of-a-kind art exhibit that features the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh in a digital 360-degree experience. There are two-story projections of the artist's most famous paintings with a twenty thousand square foot light and sound immersion. The experience also uses virtual reality. This is done through the part of the exhibit called "A Day in the Life of the Artist in Arles, France". You will feel like you are actually inside some of Vincent Van Gogh's works.
Where in the Capital Region Can We See This Experience?
The "Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience" website lists Albany as the city where we will be able to view the project. However, according to the Daily Gazette, organizers say that the exhibit will actually be coming to Schenectady. Although they won't reveal the exact location about a week before it opens through email, you can buy tickets now for the late May opening.

It will be open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10 am until 7 pm, Fridays from 10 am until 9 pm, Saturdays and holidays from 9 am until 9 pm, and on Sundays from 9 am until 6 pm.
