Looking for something fun to do over the next month or two that’s not holiday-themed? How about the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit? The totally unique and imaginative installation that has brought Van Gogh’s legendary artwork to life was extended here in Charlotte through the New Year! The exhibit has been such a hit that it is being extended for the second time. The first was through October 31, and now it’s been extended through Jan. 2.
The record-breaking traveling exhibit, which debuted in Charlotte on June 17, is being held in the historic Ford building at Camp North End at 1774 Statesville Avenue in Charlotte. Ticket prices start at $39.99 for adults and $24.99 for children (ages 6-16). You can buy tickets here.

“The reach of Immersive Van Gogh has been staggering,” Blumenthal CEO Tom Gabbard told WCNC in Charlotte. “…We are especially proud of the impact this is having on the local economy after a tough year and a half. To be extending for a second time amidst the continued effects of COVID-19 and the delta variant is extraordinary.”
With more than 265,000 tickets sold, the exhibit has made an estimated $36 million impact on the local economy, according to Blumenthal Performing Arts. Guests have come from all over the Carolinas to experience the show. An estimated 44% of tickets sold were purchased by people who don’t live in Charlotte. More than 4,400 tickets sold have been repeat buyers.
Whether this is your first time or you’ve been before, you will experience a breathtaking way to take in Van Gogh’s art. You can 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.
