Van Gogh for All, a traveling exhibit focused on introducing young audiences to Vincent van Gogh’s work, is returning to Chicago. Popping up on the Magnificent Mile at 333 N. Michigan Avenue, the experiential environment will be open to the public Sun., Aug. 15 through Sun., Sept. 26. The traveling exhibit was developed as a design-build collaboration between Luci Creative, Ravenswood Studio, and the Dolores Kohl Education Foundation.
Van Gogh for All allows visitors to explore and interact with over fifty high-definition facsimiles of Van Gogh’s artwork. The exhibit incorporates multimedia experiences, hands-on interactive activities and plenty of Instagram-worthy photo opportunities.
Audiences can see, touch and create like van Gogh, in different ways throughout the experience. Visitors can step inside a three-dimensional recreation of Van Gogh’s well-known Bedroom in Arles, manipulate an oversized digital sky in his famous Starry Night painting, and even draw their own masterpieces to hang on the wall next to recreations of Van Gogh’s famous works.
