Van Gogh immersive art show coming to Charlottetown this August
Posted on 03/22/2022
This August, surround yourself in Van Gogh and experience art like you never have before.

Festival House Inc. is proud to present Van Gogh PEI from August 5 until September 5 at the Delta Prince Edward and PEI Convention Centre, with support from the City of Charlottetown, Innovation PEI, the Charlottetown Special Events Reserve Fund, and Discover Charlottetown.

Van Gogh PEI invites you to experience art in a different way: by stepping into the landscapes of Van Gogh and surrounding yourself with colours and textures. This multimedia experience with large-scale projections, music, and special effects, transforms over 300 of Van Gogh’s most popular works into a dynamic art experience for people of all ages.

“Immersive art shows like Van Gogh PEI are great for the entire family because they change the viewing experience for the audience and make art more accessible,” said Stéfanie Power, Operations Manager at Festival House Inc. “It transforms what we view as ordinary spaces with walls, pillars and white paint into an artist's canvas, immersing you in the inner world of a brilliant artist.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the one-of-a-kind Van Gogh art show to Charlottetown,” said Mayor Philip Brown, City of Charlottetown. “This innovative cultural event, traditionally reserved for larger markets, will have substantial cultural and tourism impacts on our city. Thank you to our staff and partners for their hard work for securing this major event. We look forward to hosting people from near and far to experience this masterpiece showcase.”

Van Gogh The Artist
Van Gogh was a Dutch painter who is one of the most influential figures in the history of Western art. Van Gogh’s innovation was in the boundless emotional nakedness rendered through his paintings and the new artistic interpretation of the form, colour symbolism, and brushstroke expression, which defined some of his most famous works, such as The Starry Night (1889).

The paintings of Van Gogh are housed in many galleries and private collections worldwide: in the Netherlands, France, America, Russia, and more. To show them in one exhibition is nearly impossible, but transforming them into an immersive experience allows them to be accessible to people of all ages in different cities around the world. Van Gogh PEI invites the viewer to get up-close-and-personal with over 300 images of Van Gogh paintings, sketches and documentary photos.
