Yesterday, Wednesday 7th October, saw the announcement from the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields of a new permanent exhibition. The Lume Indianapolis is set to open in June 21, with setbacks expected if Covid security isn't tight enough. The 137 year old exhibition centre will use projectors to illuminate every space. With curated placements of projection screens and light flooding the entire room, a space the size of 30,000 sq. feet will be illuminated with works from Vincent Van Gogh.
Aromas will be set to release on timings as classical music plays in accompaniment to the images on display. Visitors will be able to walk in, around, and through each work and sense the recreated atmosphere that they represent. An impressionism layered with new impressions based on historical knowledge awaits those who would wander these halls.
Expect 150 light projectors and almost 3000 known images from the Van Gogh collection to be amplified in extra-dimensional glory. Of course, we want to sit back and relax so the gallery have naturally catered for our needs. Van Gogh inspired food and drink will be available, prepared to order. Created by Grande Experiences, the exhibit is hoped to bring yet more eager visitors to the multi-functional campus.
The artistic reasoning behind this immersive idea is to allow visitors to find a true affection for the beauty of Van Gogh and the medium in general. By magnifying each stroke, each colour transition, each dynamic shading, we can witness first-hand the true amount of work that painting so skilfully entails.
