After Immersive Van Gogh’s record-breaking six month run in Charlotte, one thing is clear — there is no shortage of art buffs in the Queen City. That’s why you’ll be excited to know that another interactive exhibit is making its way to North Carolina.
The immersive exhibit will explore the works of famed impressionist artist Claude Monet — renowned for his “Water Lilies” painting and widely touted as one of the founding fathers of impressionism.
The exhibit will also feature 17 other impressionist masters including:
Visitors can wander through large-scale, interactive projections of impressionist artwork scored to the sounds of musical masters including Claude Debussy, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Jacques Offenbach.
PRO TIP: For the first time at Biltmore House, guests will be able to observe two, seldom seen, original Monet landscape paintings from George Vanderbilt’s private collection. The paintings will be displayed in the salon.
“Hosting this immersive exhibition gives our guests a unique experience that complements the Biltmore visit and ties into the legacy of George and Edith Vanderbilt, both patrons of the arts,” Travis Tatham, Biltmore’s director of entertainment and events, told CharlotteFive.
“The works of Impressionist artists featured in the Monet & Friends exhibition blend beautifully with Biltmore Blooms, the estate’s annual springtime celebration, which begins April 1. During springtime, areas on the property take on the characteristics of Impressionist paintings, in particular the Walled Garden with its vibrant mix of tulip colors and the dazzling 15-acre Azalea Garden.”
