The popular pop-up dedicated to the brilliant post-Impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, called “Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit New York,” will partner with cannabis lifestyle purveyor HappyMunkey for a special bring-your-own-cannabis (BYOC) event in New York City that will allow guests experience the exhibition after indulging in the herb outside.
By now, you’ve probably seen ads in your feeds for the mesmerizing immersive experience featuring one of the most respected artists in painting history. Immersive Van Gogh exhibitions are now in nearly 30 majors cities dotting the U.S.
The exhibit is created by artist Massimiliano Siccardi and Hamilton’s David Korins and according to its site, “with the help of 60,600 frames of video, 90,000,000 pixels, and 500,000+ cubic feet of projections, this captivating digital art exhibit merges state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, and world-class animation.”
Siccardi’s installations have been seen by over two million visitors in Paris, France. The event’s first showing took place on August 11. The second “HappyMunkey After Dark” event is set to take place on August 18, from 9:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m. ET. Tickets cost between $125 and $200—a bit higher than the normal $40-70 price tag for the exhibition.
Guests will gain access to a “waterfront consumption lounge experience” as smoking is prohibited inside the venue. The event will also provide access to a rental cushion in case you run out of energy, and a swag bag with event-specific merchandise—including a commemorative pin and a poster.
“The event and waterfront consumption lounge experience is curated by HappyMunkey, a New York City cannabis lifestyle purveyor, providing its members an entrance to the New York cannabis lifestyle through events, podcasts, multimedia and editorial content,” the company stated.
