Is this run by the same people that pulled off that Van Gogh scam? Looks like it, if so - watch out!

  1. On the bright side, the Columbus Museum of Art ran a wonderful Van Gogh exhibit around that same time last year. Maybe they will do the same with the impressionists!

  2. Right. At the cost of the tickets, I expected more than a 20min projector film in a room filled with over a hundred people. Not falling for that again.

  3. I went to the Van Gogh exhibit and, like many, didn't think it was worth it. It was absolutely beautiful, but I think it should have been a $20 add on to something like going to the Columbus Museum of Arts (since it's essentially a movie).

  4. It depends on what you expect and what you enjoy. I haven’t seen it so I couldn’t say but I have several friends who went and absolutely loved it. I wanted to go but I wasn’t spending the money for it, I’m not that big of a Van Gogh fan. 20 years ago I would have gone for the Monet one no matter the cost but I’m not that into his stuff either.

  5. Why was the van Gogh a scam? I didn’t go to the Columbus one, but I did go to the one in Florida when I was there on vacation in spring I enjoyed it

  6. I went to the one while visiting Denver and paid a lot to see like 4 paper mache sunflowers in a room then a PowerPoint with slightly wavy pictures and Wikipedia level info tidbits. Not special or revealing about him and way overpriced. If the one here in cbus was anything similar then it was a huge scam.

  7. Because it’s essentially a large projection room. My wife and I paid over $100 together for that. It’s an hour long and it’s just “animated”version of his artwork accompanied by classical music. You don’t see ANY of his actual art pieces

  8. Scam isn't the right word for it. People call it a scam because it didn't live up to their expectations but that's not what a scam is. It was a neat show but completely not worth the admission price. It only provided about 30 minutes of entertainment and was worth maybe five bucks. I wouldn't recommend it but I also wouldn't call it a scam.

  9. I liked the immersive Van Gogh show, we had BOGO tickets so it seemed a bit overpriced for what it was but not exorbitant. If I’d paid full price I would have been annoyed. It was 30 minutes of art projected on the walls/ceiling/floor set to music. My toddler loved it so we felt like we got our money’s worth.

  10. Yeah we also got discounted rate. Felt way less ripped off but I still feel awful for those who lost out to the massive marketing of that.

  11. The longest section of the credits of the show were actually the marketing teams so I would say it was mainly a marketing effort.

  12. Everyone here calling it a scam is just mad they were influenced by the marketing. It was marketed as big rooms with projections of the paintings, and that’s exactly what it was. It would be a scam if, for example, they said the actual paintings would be on view and they were not, or if they had a single tv screen with the paintings rather than a large projection. But neither of those are the case. People just got caught up in the hype and don’t like feeling like a sucker.

  13. I saw Immersive Van Gogh in LA last fall. I thought it was great. The experience started as soon as we entered. Once in the exhibition proper, we had our choice of socially distanced areas with seating cubes. As long as everyone stayed seated it was easy to see they out the room. The imagers and sound quality were both excellent. Plus, we were allowed to stay as long as we liked. We actually sat they the entire show twice. All in all, I thought they did a fine job.

  14. I feel like I was the only person who enjoyed the Van Gogh one. Maybe it was because I really appreciated the music/art pairings.

  15. I paid $200 for two tickets, to just sit in a room for 15 minutes. It was cool, but not $200 cool. Still salty I spent that much. They definitely could have explained or marketed it better
