The when and the where are still up in the air, but a multimedia exhibit based on the works of artist Vincent van Gogh is on its way to Tulsa.
“Beyond van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” will be in Tulsa for a limited engagement, according to a Tuesday press release on Business Wire. A website, vangoghtulsa.com, is now active offering people the opportunity to register for “early access to tickets before they go on sale to the general public”, according to the statement.
John Telem, of Telem Grody Public Relations, said “we will announce our opening date and location… later.”
There are currently five such exhibits touring the United States, which incorporate high-definition projections that create moving images on the walls, ceiling, and floor of the exhibit space, to create the illusion to be in paintings as renowned as “The Starry Night”, “Cafe Terrace at Night”, “Sunflowers” and “Wheatfield with Crows”.

“Beyond van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” is produced by Paquin Entertainment Group, with the installation itself created by Montreal’s world-renowned Normal Studio.
This immersive experience features more than 300 paintings by van Gogh and combines van Gogh’s own words, set to a symphonic score, to serve as a narrative guiding visitors through the 30,000 square foot exhibit and providing deeper insights into creating some of the most famous paintings in art history.
“Beyond van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” is currently on display in 18 U.S. cities, from Albuquerque, NM, to St. Louis, with 10 cities slated for future screenings.
Although van Gogh’s five immersive exhibitions are independent, all offer a similar experience. One of those shows, “The Original Immersive van Gogh,” is scheduled to take place in Oklahoma City from December 14 to January 14. 8, 2023. This exhibit, according to the website, vangoghoklahoma.com, will be set up “in a secret location in the heart of Oklahoma City.” Tickets for this exhibition currently range between $29.99 and $82.49 per person.
