An immersive lighthouse experience featuring one of the best artists to ever live, Vincent Van Gogh, opened this past summer in Scottsdale.

The Van Gogh experience is located at 4301 N Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale. The venue is amazing while maintaining social distance. There being social distancing circles that are at least 6 feet apart, and masks are required.

The Van Gogh experience has a total 500,000 feet of cubic projection 60,600 frames of video and 90,000,000 pixels (https://www.vangoghphx.com/#) “ I really like the digital part of the experience because in my opinion its amazing how they change the pictures to different things with just the screen” said Luke LeBras (9)

Some of Van Gogh’s most popular paintings are  The Starry Night, Cafe Terrace at Night, and his self portrait. Starry Night is his most popular painting. “My favorite painting is the Starry Night because its an oil painting and because of the way he made it” Traverse Christensen (9)

Overall the Van Gogh experience is fantastic with all of the tech and art all jumbled together.
