By this point you probably know that an incredible, dream-like exhibition of Vincent Van Gogh’s brilliant masterpieces is coming to life in NYC this summer. And now, the exact location has been revealed!
After much anticipation, the surprise location has been unveiled as: Skylight on Vesey, a majestic building right in the heart of Lower Manhattan.
Skylight on Vesey, located on 300 Vesey St., is a monumental space with a fascinating history. Once the home of the New York Mercantile Exchange at the World Financial Center, its sprawling trading floor has never been open before for events….until now.
With over 30,000 square feet of space and 40-foot-high ceilings, imagine how Van Gogh’s works will transform from mere paintings into their own magical worlds right before your eyes. Plus, the massive FiDi space allows for the ease of social distancing.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience from renowned European “edu-tainment” company Exhibition Hub utilizes a unique combination of several dozen projectors, 15,000-square-foot screens, plus a separate high-tech VR adventure, to create a mind-bending 360° digital art experience.
Plus, their cutting-edge videomapping process is only used by a few companies around the world! Instead of standing and staring at one of the iconic artist’s beautiful framed paintings from afar, imagine being able to walk inside one — the vibrant colors swirling around you while you take in the stunning, post-impressionist works in an otherworldly way.
And now, you know exactly where the magic will be taking place: a highly impressive space in FiDi.
