The exhibit was recently extended through Oct. 31! The exhibit is being held in the historic Ford building at Camp North End at 1774 Statesville Avenue in Charlotte. For information about things to do before and after the exhibit, click here.

Whether this is your first time or you’ve been before, don’t miss the blockbuster exhibit that is astonishing in scale and breathtakingly imaginative. You will experience Van Gogh’s art in a completely new and unforgettable way.
Lose yourself in 500,000 cubic feet of monumental projections animating Vincent van Gogh’s oeuvre– from his sunny landscapes and night scenes to his portraits and still life paintings. The installation includes the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889), and so much more.

BLUMENTHAL’s COVID POLICY
Blumenthal Performing Arts is closely following recommendations from the CDC regarding Covid-19 safety guidelines. Currently, we encourage everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask indoors in all of our venues. The safety protocol in our venues is subject to change at any time based on the latest guidance of health officials. We ask that guests agree to abide by the protocols in place at the time of the performance, which may include a requirement to wear a mask.
Here are a few other ways we’re taking your safety seriously:
– We limit sales and access into the exhibit to 270 people, which is only 20% of what normally would be allowed in this large of a space.
– Illuminated circles are projected on the floor six feet apart, encouraging and supporting social distancing while viewing the exhibit.
– Blumenthal set a vaccination requirement for our entire staff back in February.
