Created by Italy’s digital artist Massimiliano Siccardi, the touring show opens July 29 at a secret Phoenix location that will be announced soon, according to a press release. Tickets are $39.99 per person and presales begin March 9 at vangoghphx.com.
“Hundreds of thousands of guests have seen ‘Immersive Van Gogh’ in small, socially distanced safe groups. It is an honor to bring the arts back into peoples’ lives during these times,” said producer Corey Ross in a press release.

Siccardi and his creative team have made Van Gogh’s art come alive by creating movement in his work. The exhibition also features original music by Italian multimedia composer Luca Longobardi.
“Despite being unknown throughout his life, Van Gogh’s artwork has created a lasting impact through its emotional richness and simple beauty,” Siccardi said in the release.
“Both myself and Luca Longobardi are very excited to visit Phoenix and once again bring Van Gogh’s legacy to life in a way that embraces this city’s one-of-a-kind energy.”
