Posted on November 16, 2020
Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago, a new venue within Chicago’s recently renovated landmark Germania Club Building, will open Thursday, Feb. 11, 2021 with the U.S. premiere of the blockbuster art experience Immersive Van Gogh. The three-story facility is dedicated to immersive art presentations, merging the boundaries between entertainment and culture to give visitors the sense that they are encountering art as never before. Utilizing the building’s Victorian Era architectural details, 35-foot-tall walls and multiple levels (including balconies), the venue will present vibrant art exhibitions that surround the viewer on all sides.
Immersive Van Gogh, is a visually spectacular digital art exhibition that recently received widespread critical acclaim and continues to see blockbuster attendance in Toronto. Immersive Van Gogh invites audiences to “step inside” the iconic works of post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, evoking his highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement and imagination. The Italian creative team who pioneered experiences for Atelier des Lumières in Paris will create a custom design to fit the gracious Neo-Classical architecture of the exhibition’s Chicago home.
Tickets for the exhibition will go on sale to the public at 11 a.m. CST on Monday, November 23 at vangoghchicago.com and by phone at 844-307-4644. Ticket prices start at $39.99 ($24.99 for children 16 or younger), with timed and flexible ticket options available. Tickets will be on sale for viewings Feb. 11 – May 2, 2020. The venue is easily accessible by public transportation and has ample parking in the nearby James House parking garage.
The hour-long walk through experience has been designed with health and safety as a priority. Admissions will be limited in line with the City of Chicago’s capacity guidelines with touchless ticket-taking; temperature checks upon arrival; hand sanitizer stations and social distancing markers prominent throughout the venue; and digitally projected social distancing circles on the gallery floors to ensure appropriate spacing. All guests must wear a face covering at all times during their visit to Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago.
