Due to popular demand, Immersive Van Gogh at Pier 36 on Vesey Street, has been extended through Jan. 2022.

It was seen by 800,000 visitors during its New York City premiere in the summer of 2021, before closing to make way for previously scheduled events at Pier 36. More than 3.5 million tickets have been sold to Immersive Van Gogh since its North American premiere in July 2020, making it one of the most popular attractions in North America.

Immersive Van Gogh invites audiences to “step inside” the iconic works of Van Gogh, evoking his highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement and imagination. The gallery space offers patrons more than 500,000 cubic feet of animated projections. Immersive Van Gogh was designed by Creator Massimiliano Siccardi, with original, mood-setting music, both original and curated, by Italian multimedia Composer Luca Longobardi, who provided a score that combines experimental electronic music with pure, ethereal and melodic orchestral pieces. Vittorio Guidotti is the Art Director.

Creative Director David Korins, award-winning designer of Broadway hits including Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, created a custom design to fit the architecture of the exhibition’s New York home, adding innovative design elements to the Pier 36 experience.

On Dec. 15, at 10am, there will be a relaxed, hour experience, inclusive and accessible to anyone who wishes to experience Immersive Van Gogh in a calm and comfortable way. With a slight adjustment of lighting and volume controls, the experience is a more welcoming space for the autism community and those with sensory or communication differences.
