GRANDE EXPERIENCES & NEWFIELDS
Grande Experiences is honoured to continue our partnership with The Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields and bring the second year of content to THE LUME Indianapolis with Monet & Friends Alive. In its inaugural year, THE LUME Indianapolis swept guests off their feet and into the art itself with Van Gogh Alive, weaving imagery from 120 state-of-the-art projectors onto a tapestry of surfaces, synchronised with a stirring symphony of music and aromas that seamlessly and magically amplifies the beauty and wonder of masterpieces to unprecedented proportions. It was the first of its kind in the US, occupying the entire fourth floor of the museum with new immersive, multi-sensory digital galleries extending throughout the almost 30,000 sq ft of floor space.
“After soaring success in its inaugural year, THE LUME Indianapolis featuring Monet & Friends Alive will undoubtedly be a memorable experience for guests of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in learning more about Impressionism, or those who are experiencing a museum for the very first time,” said Jonathan Berger, Vice President of Marketing and External Affairs at Newfields.
Newfields offers dynamic experiences with art and nature for guests of all ages. The 152-acre cultural campus features art galleries, lush gardens, a historic home, performance spaces, a nature preserve and sculpture park. From inspiring exhibitions in the IMA Galleries to concerts in The Toby, to a stroll through The Garden with a glass of something cold, guests are invited to interact with art and nature in exciting new ways.
Newfields is home to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, among the ten largest and ten oldest general art museums in the nation; the Lilly House, a National Historic Landmark; The Garden, featuring 40 acres of contemporary and historic gardens, a working greenhouse and an orchard; and The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park, one of the largest art and nature parks in the country. The Newfields campus extends outside of Indianapolis with Miller House and Garden in Columbus, Ind.—one of the nation’s most highly regarded examples of mid-century Modernist architecture.
