PHOTOS: Immersive Van Gogh exhibit lets you see the world through Vincent's eyes

  • A massive, immersive exhibition celebrating artist Vincent van Gogh has leaned on some Broadway talent for a little razzle dazzle during its visit to New York City. Producers of “Immersive Van Gogh” have tapped Tony- and Emmy Award-winning set designer David Korins for creative help after they secured a jaw-dropping 70,000-square-foot venue for their exhibit in lower Manhattan, easily the biggest space the exhibit has landed. The art installation displays iconic works of post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, evoking his emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music and movement.
