The 'Beyond Van Gogh: Immersive Experience' is coming to Sarasota

The exhibit promises 300 works of art from Van Gogh, like "The Starry Night”, “Sunflowers” and “Café Terrace at Night,”  projected in a 30,000-square-foot space.

Now that Vincent Van Gogh's art is in the public domain, there's not one, but two traveling projector shows currently touring the country, and one of them is coming to Sarasota next month.

The Beyond Van Gogh: Immersive Experience will be at The Mall at University Town Center on March 4, and run through April 24. The exhibit promises 300 works of art from Van Gogh, like "The Starry Night”, “Sunflowers” and “Café Terrace at Night,”  projected in a 30,000-square-foot space.

"Using the artist’s own dreams, thoughts and words to drive the experience as a narrative, guests move along projection-swathed walls wrapped in light and color that swirls and dances as it refocuses into the flowers, cafes and landscapes of his famous artworks," says the press release.

The exhibit takes about an hour to walk through, and tickets for adults start at $39.

As of now, this is the only Florida stop near Tampa Bay. A similar concept, Immersive Van Gogh, stopped in Orlando last December to lackluster reviews, and nothing could really compete with "Van Gogh Alive" which came to St. Pete last year.
