After making the rounds of 20 North American cities over the past two years, the “immersive” experience — with huge video projections animating the works of the 19th-century Dutch painter of “Sunflowers” and “Starry Night” fame — is set to open Thanksgiving Day in a built-out space in the Greenway Station shopping center.


“Immersive Van Gogh” was designed and conceived by the European video artist Massimiliano Siccardi, with a soundtrack by Luca Longobardi. Up to 200 visitors can be in the single gallery space that will be used for “Immersive Van Gogh Madison.” Related installations by Broadway’s “Hamilton” and “Dear Evan Hansen” designer David Korins also will be at the venue, along with additional scenic elements by scenic designer Randy Wong-Westbrooke.

With clouds blowing and sunflowers flexing in vast video projections on a 35-minute loop, visitors can sit or stand through the sensory-filled experience, though Ross said he prefers to be on his feet so he can easily “spin around” to take in the moving images.

This looks to be a captivating and memorable experience, especially suitable over the extended holiday between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
