#FIRSTLOOK: TORONTO’S “IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH EXHIBIT”
We’re thrilled finally to have experienced Toronto’s IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH EXHIBIT at long last. The first of its kind Drive-In Digital Art Exhibition brought to us by Lighthouse Immersive debuted back in June in the City to raves, placing Torontonians into a 600,000 cubic foot space where they can experience up-close Vincent Van Gogh‘s genius work. The show features over 2,000+ pieces from his catalog, compressed into 35 minutes, culminating in his masterpiece, Starry Night.
Rest assured, those without cars also have access via a socially-distanced Walk-Thru version of the experience.
We experienced this with a couple friends courtesy of Honda Canada‘s 2020 Accord Touring 2.0. The exhibit, set to music and projections on the walls of the space at 1 Yonge Street, was a thing of great wonder and ambient beauty. Through the vehicle’s audio system, we were able to listen to a pre-curation by Colm Feore and poke our head through the moonroof to get the full experience. Many others in attendance just reclined their seats, sat back and enjoyed.
Lots of fun merchandise like face coverings and socks are available too as are some concessions.

If you are attending, please ensure you arrive with your car about 15 minutes early. You will queue outside the venue and be guided in and out by their friendly staff.
Tickets to the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit are available still up to end of October 2020. More details can be found on their website here.
