Delve into 'The Starry Night' and other Vincent van Gogh masterpieces

The Starry Night is an oil on canvas painting by the Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh . Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before dawn.

The Starry Night is one of the most recognized paintings in the history of Western culture, and now we can delve into it by going to a new installation at the Newfields Museum in Indianapolis.

This coming June, an exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art in Newfields will emulate the experience of seeing The Starry Night firsthand by transforming Van Gogh’s 1889 work and other masterpieces into a ‘three-dimensional world that visitors can explore through through all your senses. ‘

Titled ‘The Lume’, the permanent installation will use 150 digital projectors to reflect nearly 3,000 images of the Dutch artist’s paintings onto the walls, ceilings and floors of the museum’s fourth-floor galleries.

To add an even more immersive experience, classical music will be played as visitors progress through digital versions of Sunflowers (1889), Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889), Sunflowers (1889) and Almond Blossom (1890), among other works.
