Claude Monet once said, “the richness I achieve comes from nature, the source of my inspiration.” The painter thought his garden to be his most beautiful work of art, a living canvas where he gathered inspiration for his paintings. The gardens of Giverny, where Monet resided for years, were a true muse for the artist — a refuge of some sort after his wife passed away in childbirth.
It is this awe-inspiring flora that comes to life at Monet: The Immersive Experience — a powerful journey through the painter’s life and work. Through the latest technology, all of Monet’s pieces are magnified in 360-degree projections, from “Woman with a Parasol” (1875) to the “Water Lilies” series.
As you step inside the transformed 18 West Fourth Street in downtown Cincinnati, prepare to experience a total change of scenery: Monet’s gardens take shape through stunning art installations, interactive projections and virtual reality. Monet: The Immersive Experience presents a new way to view and live art, actually transporting you into the world created by the artist’s brushstrokes.
On top of immersive activities, you’ll find a delightful walk-through of Monet’s life where you can ponder on the artist and all of his accomplishments.
Before coming to Cincinnati next month, this stunning exhibition has toured Atlanta. Attendees were so captivated by the interactivity of the experience that the exhibit is now returning to the Big Peach for a second run! Here’s what some of Atlanta’s visitors had to say about the immersive experience:
Spectacular! Thought the “big room” portion was outstanding (and it was), but absolutely pay the extra $5 to do the virtual reality experience at the end. Peter B.
This was a fabulous way to get to know the intimacy of an artist we all love. Scott R.
It was delightful, and the pleasant staff added to the experience. I’ve loved Monet’s art since the first time I saw one of his paintings. Betsy P.
