In excess of Van Gogh Backpack Drive

Imagine being entirely immersed in more than 300 of Vincent Van Gogh’s finest post-impressionist paintings. Imagine all of this art being emancipated from its two-dimensional confines into a three-dimensional experience that thrills every sense and brings to life one of the world’s most influential painters. Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience (www.vangoghomaha.com), created by Paquin Entertainment Group, has sold over 3 million tickets worldwide, making it one of the most successful traveling exhibitions now on display.
Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience was produced by French-Canadian Creative Director Mathieu St-Arnaud and his team at Montreal’s internationally acclaimed Normal Studio. “We are extremely appreciative and honored by the audience’s wonderful response and enthusiasm for the event.” Mathieu St. Arnaud, Creative Director, said. “We understood from the beginning that we wanted to give the audience a really personal and awe-inspiring experience. When we feel appreciation, it is difficult to describe the lovely emotion it produces. This is why we do what we do, and it justifies all of our hard work.”
“We are ecstatic that audiences in the Omaha area have responded so warmly to Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” said Paquin Entertainment Group producer Justin Paquin. We are thrilled that more Van Gogh admirers will be able to view this display.
Guests are transported into Van Gogh’s universe by way of a brand-new, exclusively designed environment comprising of three interconnected zones. The Education Room connects to the Waterfall Room, which in turn flows into the Immersive Experience Room. Freed from their frames, Van Gogh’s magnificent paintings emerge on projection-swathed walls, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the remarkable detail of his work and be surrounded by his ever-changing, swirling, and vibrant flowers, cafes, and breathtaking landscapes. Moreover, hearing the artist’s own dreams, feelings, and words placed to a symphonic score creates a narrative experience that is unparalleled.
In recent years, exhibitions of Van Gogh’s cinematic works have traveled from European cities to North America, where they have been welcomed with critical praise and sold-out audiences in every region. Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will continue its extended engagement in Omaha before touring North America. Art enthusiasts from all around will have the opportunity to partake in this one-of-a-kind and amazing experience.
The new dates are now available for purchase at www.vangoghomaha.com. Through August 14, the exhibition is open on Sundays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Beyond Van Gogh will be open from August 15 to September 9 on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Additionally, the show will be open on Labor Day, September 5, as well.
