- If you've been wanting to experience Montreal's Imagine Van Gogh exhibition, but haven't had the chance to, you're in luck.
- Due to popular demand, Arsenal Contemporary Art is extending the date of the exhibition — for the second time.
- Get all the details below!
If you've not yet experienced Montreal's Imagine Van Gogh exhibit, you're going to want to make your way there soon. The immersive art space hosting some of Van Gogh's most famous impressionist pieces was set to end on March 5 giving you less than two weeks to get to Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal where the expansive display is being held. Luckily, the event has been such a hit that event organizers have decided to extend the installation in Little Burgundy for a little bit longer.
Now, you have until Sunday, April 5, 2020, to immerse yourself in the world of Van Gogh.
The organizers make the announcement earlier this month, indicating that the exhibit had already seen over 150,000 visitors since the opening in December.
The event will also host a special "March Break" day on Monday, March 2. Otherwise, the event space is open to visitors Tuesday through Sunday.
On top of the extension, Imagine Van Gogh is also hosting a photo contest, with some pretty awesome prizes for event-goers that snap and share a photo on Instagram.
The Instagram page @vangogh_montreal will be "re-gramming" photos taken in the immersive art space that are posted and shared to Instagram.
The three photos shared by @vangogh_montreal that get the most "likes" will each get a $100 gift card for an awesome Montreal restaurant.
The restaurants you could soon be dining at for free include Patrice - Pâtissier, Restaurant ZIBO, and Karibu.
On top of that, three random Instagram users who participate by liking the photos shared can also win a pair of tickets to the Imagine Van Gogh exhibit.
You can find out more about the contest and see some more amazing photos of the exhibit at the Imagine Van Gogh Facebook page linked above.
Tickets are $26 for adults (before taxes) and $21 for students with I.D. Visitors who are 17 years old or younger only pay $16 and family passes are available.
