The popular Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit is coming to Charlotte. From June 18th to September 12th, 2021, the digital art experience will take place in Camp North End’s historic Ford Building. It’s being presented by Blumenthal Performing Arts.
Camp North End’s massive Ford Building will be a fitting backdrop for the 500,000 cubic feet of projections that will animate Vincent van Gogh’s work.
Tickets are on sale now and have already sold out for some time slots.

Ticket prices for Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit: Adult tickets range from $40 to $99.99, and tickets for kids ages 6 to 16 start at $29.99. Children younger than 6 are free. Admission is reserved by day and time. The $99.99 ticket includes priority access, flexibility to arrive up to two hours before or after the time on their tickets and specialized Van Gogh souvenirs.
We did have a look at ticket prices and the $40 tickets are not available for all times or all days. As you might expect, they tend to be for during the day, on weekdays. For most evenings you can expect to pay $50, at least. There are $55 and $60 tickets as well.
Since this attraction goes until September 12th, maybe there will be some discounts offered later in the run, especially during non-peak times. If there are, you can bet that you’ll learn about them here!
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.

The moving images, which will highlight brushstrokes, detail and color, will be enhanced by the soundtrack by Luca Longobardi, who pioneered immersive digital art experiences in France.
The exhibit is produced by Lighthouse Immersive.
Van Gogh’s work seems to be well suited for an immersive multimedia experience. There are actually at least four other touring immersive Van Gogh experiences, including:
- Imagine Van Gogh: The Immersive Exhibition
- Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
- Beyond Van Gogh: An Immersive Experience
- Van Gogh Alive
Some people have described the experience as being inside a Van Gogh painting.
Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit, the show coming to Charlotte, was featured in the Netflix show “Emily in Paris.”
The show was seen by over 2 million visitors in Paris, and had a sold-out run in Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
