The highly acclaimed "Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience" is coming to Nueces County, debuting June 8 at the Richard M. Borchard Regional Fairgrounds in Robstown.

Honoring the Dutch Post-Impressionist artist, the exhibit has sold more than 5 million tickets worldwide and garnered critical reviews. There’s no exaggeration to the “immersive” claim as this show takes visitors on a multimedia, beyond-the-frame journey through 300 of Van Gogh's works. High-resolution images — many in motion — are projected onto walls and floors.

“Beyond Van Gogh” occupies 30,000 square-feet of exhibit space and uses over 4 trillion content pixels in its displays. The exhibition is a creation of the Normal Studio in Montreal.


"Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience" runs June 8-Aug. 4 at the fairgrounds, 1213 Terry Shamsie Blvd. in Robstown. Hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday (last entry at 7 p.m.); 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday-Saturday (last entry at 8 p.m.); and 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday (last entry at 6 p.m.)

On selected Saturdays, the exhibit will host yoga classes in the Immersive Room against a backdrop of Van Gogh images.

Cameras for non-commercial photography are permitted. A cashless gift shop will be available at the venue and online.

Tickets can be purchased online.
