Lighthouse Immersive, North America's leading producer of ground-breaking experiential art exhibits, and Maestro Immersive Art announce their newest immersive art installation, "Frida: Immersive Dream."
This exhibition will run at Lighthouse ArtSpace at Germania Club, 108 W. Germania Pl., Feb. 24-May 28, 2022.
On the heels of their critically acclaimed blockbuster Immersive Van Gogh (now on view in 15 cities), Lighthouse Immersive and Maestro Immersive Art have set their sights on the art and life of Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), the beloved LGBTQ+ Mexican artist best known for compelling self-portraits and radiant pieces inspired by her life in her native country of Mexico.
The exhibition features some of the artist's best-known works "brought to life" by the world-renowned master of digital art, Italy's Massimiliano Siccardi, again accompanied by composer Luca Longobardi's score.
Tickets (starting at $39.99 each) are now available; visit immersive-frida.com .
