Meet Vincent Van Gogh Experience Wins THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement 2017
Event is thrilled to announce that the Meet Vincent Van Gogh Experience has won the prestigious 2017 THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement - Immersive Museum Exhibit: Touring.
Last year’s winner in this category was Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. “I am absolutely delighted by this award,” says Event’s CEO James Alexander, “and the international recognition it gives this special project. It is a most welcome acknowledgement of the creativity and imagination of the team here at Event and makes the hard work all worthwhile.”
Meet Vincent is a fully immersive interactive journey through the turbulent and creative life of Van Gogh, based on his own words and paintings. Visitors can walk through life-size recreations of his powerful paintings, sit on his bed in the house in Arles, lounge on the haystacks of Saint-Remy, eavesdrop on fights between Van Gogh and Gauguin, stroll through the halls of the Saint-Paul Asylum. At each step, they are guided by Vincent as he narrates his hopes, dreams and intense yearnings in passages taken directly from letters written by the artist and those who loved him.
