Omicron Viral Strain Prompts Additional Safety Measures in North America’s Most Popular Immersive Experience
The Original Immersive van Gogh Exhibit Las Vegas, the blockbuster art installation and original experiential celebration of the work of beloved post-Impressionist Vincent van Gogh, provides additional Covid safety measures in their exhibit at Lighthouse Las Vegas located on Level 3 at The Shops at Crystals (adjacent to ARIA Resort & Casino) as the Omicron viral strain causes a global uptick in cases. The most visible of these measures are social distancing circles programmed into the projection that ensure audiences in the free-to-roam galleries maintain a safe distance from each other.
Immersive Van Gogh has closely adhered to all state and local Covid guidelines in their 17 different venues across the U.S. and Canada. In Las Vegas, masks are required for all visitors.
The Immersive van Gogh’s social distancing circles are provided to enhance safety measures within the exhibit as prominent Broadway productions like “Hamilton” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” are taking hiatuses due to backstage Covid cases, while game delays and cancellations are rising in the NHL, NBA and NFL.
“After nearly two years of navigating this pandemic, Immersive van Gogh has led the industry in providing a Covid-safe experience,” said Corey Ross, producer of Immersive van Gogh. “Even in the early days of the pandemic, we had hundreds of thousands of visitors come through our Toronto exhibit and not a single case was attributed to our venue. We have carefully crafted an experience that is ‘safe to GOGH’.”
More than 4 million tickets have been sold to Immersive van Gogh since its North American premiere in July 2020, making it one of the most popular attractions in North America. The exhibit invites audiences to “step inside” the iconic works of Van Gogh, evoking his highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement and imagination.
The gallery space offers patrons more than 500,000 cubic feet of animated projections. Immersive Van Gogh was designed by Creator Massimiliano Siccardi, with original, mood-setting music, both original and curated, by Italian multimedia Composer Luca Longobardi, who provided a score that combines experimental electronic music with pure, ethereal and melodic orchestral pieces. Vittorio Guidotti is the Art Director.
With approximately 100 state-of-the-art projectors illuminating over the exhibit space, visitors to Immersive van Gogh will be encircled from head-to-toe in Van Gogh’s brushstrokes and colors, including animated details from works such as Self Portrait with Felt Hat (1887), The Bedroom in Arles (1888), Irises (1889) and The Starry Night (1889).
