Vincent Van Gogh and Frido Kahlo have gotten the "Immersive" treatment. Now, it's time for the public to experience Claude Monet and fellow Impressionists.
Lighthouse Immersive is shifting its focus to the Impressionist movement of the late 19th century with "Immersive Monet & The Impressionists"an exploration of the artists who shook up the art world in an attempt to capture both the transient nature of beauty as well as the timeless beauty of nature.
The exhibit starts Friday, June 17, at Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago, 108 W. Germania Pl.
State-of-the-art video mapping and ground-breaking animation bring the art of the
Impressionists to life in what is slated to be the largest immersive art experience in the country. Approximately, 500,000 cubic feet of projections composed of more than 1.2 million frames of video bring the piece together, bathing viewers in the brushstrokes and colors of Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and many more.
In addition to Impressionism, the program also features other artists who birthed movements that nudged the art world into the 20th century, including the marine paintings of J.M.W. Turner and the post-Impressionist works of Toulouse-Lautrec.
