When a Toronto museum’s Vincent van Gogh exhibit was interrupted due to COVID-19, the museum staff had to pivot and came up with an ingenious new way for people to visit the famous art: a drive-in exhibit.
Art lovers will be able to drive into a 4,000 square foot downtown industrial space and see more than 400 pieces from collections around the world. The space allows for 14 cars at a time and visitors simply drive in, turn off their engines, and are treated to a visual display of the pieces including Starry Night, Sunflowers, and many self-portraits.
The display was created with the help of Paris-based digital art project Atelier des Lumières and is set to open up on June 18th. Entrance, however, costs a pretty penny, with the museum charging $100 per car–although that does include access to the walk-in exhibition when it does eventually open. Then again, if you can’t enjoy the world as you usually know it, why not take a drive into the world of Vincent van Gogh?
