From immersive exhibit to immersive stay.
The Kimpton Schofield hotel in downtown Cleveland is taking advantage of the popularity of the long-running, Immersive Van Gogh Experience at Cleveland's Lighthouse Artspace .
The luxury hotel is now offering art enthusiasts the opportunity to stay overnight in an exclusive suite modeled after the exhibit.
The Immersive Van Gogh exhibit allows attendees to "step inside” the iconic works of post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, evoking his highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement and imagination.
Officials say more than 3 million tickets have been sold for Immersive Van Gogh exhibits across North America -- making it one of the most sought-after attractions on the continent.
While the Van Gogh exhibit has toured nationwide, the suite is an experience unique to Cleveland.
“Our partnership with the Schofield is affording anyone who comes to our exhibit another immersive and almost surreal way to be surrounded by Van Gogh’s artwork,” said exhibit representative Rita Russo. “Cleveland is the only city that offers this suite experience, furthering a personal journey of experiencing this amazing artwork.”
The new suite allows guests to expand and continue their experience of the exhibit by sleeping under the stars, relaxing among a field of wheat and sharing the rich history and culture of the Dutch Post-Impressionist.
“Staying in a beautiful suite wrapped in Van Gogh’s greatest works is definitely a one-of-a-kind way to extend the sense of immersion associated with the exhibit,” said Jordan Nye, the Schofield’s director of sales and marketing.
The suite includes images from the following Van Gogh exhibits:
- Starry Night
- Almond Blossom
- Country Road in Provence by Night
- Wheat Fields Near Auvers 1888
