The Breathtaking 'Imagine Van Gogh' Exhibition Is Finally Coming To Vancouver This Winter

This February, the west coast will be welcoming a stunning Van Gogh exhibit in Vancouver. Van Gogh's most famous works will be projected on the walls of the Vancouver Convention Center for an experience unlike any other. 

The exhibition, Imagine Van Gogh, has sold over 300,000 tickets this year in Montreal, Quebec City, and Winnipeg, and now it's finally Vancouver's turn.

Travelling all the way from Europe, the exhibit features over 200 of Van Gogh's paintings in a whole new light, according to a press release sent to Narcity.

While tickets have not yet gone on sale, you can register for pre-sale so you're the first to know when you can buy them. 

Imagine Van Gogh has received endless praise wherever it's gone thus far. 

The team behind the experience says it's "sure to be an exceptional success and the highlight of the 2021 arts season on the West Coast."

Public health and safety guidelines will be followed and this experience is totally contactless. 

"A limited number of guests will be allowed in on a timed-entry basis, hand sanitizer will be provided, physical distancing of two meters will be required, and masks will be mandatory upon entering," outlined the press release.

We can't think of a cuter date idea or a better excuse to get out a stretch your legs while being immersed in arts and culture.
