If you’ve been spending a lot of time indoors and the thought of one more Zoom hangout makes you want to throw your laptop, you can now step out of your home and into 600,000 cubic feet of Van Gogh’s art at Toronto’s Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit.
Toronto has thought of many creative ways to keep us entertained during quarantine, like virtual tours of our favourite local museums or a sky-high show from the top of the CN Tower, but nothing is perhaps more enthralling than the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit.
This one-of-a-kind show lets visitors become absorbed (literally) by the famous Dutch artist's paintings with stunning projections that make art come to life, in real life.
What is the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit?
If you've ever wished you could get a little closer to art without getting yelled at by a museum official, now is your time.
The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit lets you wander through giant projections of Van Gogh's works, allowing you to get acquainted with normally hard-to-see details, brush strokes and entire worlds of colour. From beautiful landscapes to mesmerizing self portraits, you won't be able to take your eyes off the displays.

Where is the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit?
The exhibit is located in the historic Toronto Star building, inside the area that used to house the newspaper's printing presses. The space is vast and leaves plenty room for imagination and, of course, social distance.
Why should you go to the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit?
From Starry Night to Sunflowers, get mesmerized by the brilliant, yet complicated mind of a genius on a journey of creative expression – plus a whole lot of content for the 'gram. During lockdown, visitors could drive through the exhibit, but as COVID-19 regulations have started to relax, the exhibit now allows visitors to walk inside while maintaining a safe, physical distance.
