Many people know Vincent Van Gogh is a famous painter and known for his painting, Starry Night. Blumenthal Performing Arts sponsored a Vincent Van Gogh Immersive Experience, which is wildly popular, which sold out quickly (so popular that the event expanded to last longer). While Blumenthal is thought of to be theater-natured, it also sponsors events such as Charlotte Shout and the Vincent Van Gogh Immersive Exhibit.
As you can tell in the pictures below, there was some photo opportunities outside of the actual immersive experience.
This event makes you look at his paintings in a way that is different. As in, you are able to get a close-up view of the paintings. The way each painting changed into the next was incredible. I was totally mesmerized watching it. I was most looking forward to Starry Night, my favorite Van Gogh painting- I actually was unaware of other Van Gogh paintings. You actually walk into this room and sit on a bench, and its almost as if you become a part of the paintings themselves- you can clearly see some of the brushstrokes themselves and the colors more vividly. While watching the paintings, you are also listening the music that perfectly match the nature of each painting or group of paintings.
Seriously, I have the hardest time describing how incredible this experience was. Actually, this was my first time at Camp North End in Charlotte. Afterwards, my family had some gelato popsicles to cool down- after all, it was a hot day.
