In the old Amoeba Music building, ‘Immersive Van Gogh’ rises

Little-known fact: There are no silk sunflowers available from bulk suppliers in North America right now, say the folks behind “Immersive Van Gogh.”

Why?

Tens of thousands of them adorn spaces inside “Immersive Van Gogh” exhibitions running in five cities across the U.S. and Canada. When it opens here on Saturday, the L.A. iteration will feature a sunflower-themed bar with a backdrop of yellow silk sunflowers, a favorite flower of Van Gogh’s to paint.

One NYT critic called the projections “wall-size screen savers.”

Two ‘immersive’ Van Gogh exhibits go head-to-head in NYC, reflecting growing trend

Vincent Van Gogh, as we all know, is the Jimi Hendrix of painters.

Those too-vivid colors! Those swirling, psychedelic stars! And with the aid of certain recreational substances, even better.

But for those without immediate access to lysergic acid diethylamide, New York is now providing, not just one, but two, alternatives.

They are, luckily, quite simple to tell apart.
