VAN GOGH ALIVE OPENS IN DENVER, COLORADO
Presented by The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Stephen Lindsay & Brett Sirota and Andrew Kay Management in partnership with Grande Experiences, Van Gogh Alive opened at The Hangar at Aurora’s Stanley Marketplace in Denver, Colorado on July 9, 2021 – beyond the SENSORY4™ Immersive Gallery, Van Gogh Alive also features an interpretive area where visitors can learn more about Van Gogh’s life and works, as well as interactive art stations where they can create their own art with the help of expert video tutorials.
Visitors can also create their own souvenirs within a life-sized walk-in representation of Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles painting and the iconic ‘Sunflower Selfie Room – a 360° mirrored room complete with hundreds of sunflowers that have delighted Instagram feeds the world over. Here they can create their own modern masterpiece in these spectacular rooms and share their images using #vangoghalivedcpa.
The Hangar also features a bar within the experience and visitors can also visit the many dining establishments at The Stanley Marketplace so that they can extend and complement the digital journey into the life and work of the post-Impressionist fin-de-siecle artist, Van Gogh.
Van Gogh Alive will run through to September 26.
Bruce Peterson, Owner of Grande Experiences, said: “The team and I are very excited and honored to partner with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts to bring the world-renowned Van Gogh Alive to the people of Denver and indeed all of Colorado. Van Gogh Alive is an exceptionally innovative multi-sensory experience that took 18 months and countless iterations over the past decade to create. It has really redefined the way many people around the world engage in art and culture and it has brought tremendous joy to audiences old and young.” Peterson continued, “Interestingly we were last here in Denver in 2019 with the very successful Leonardo da Vinci – 500 Years of Genius Exhibition held at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. I hope Van Gogh Alive is every bit as enjoyable and successful for the city.”
