Mama and I have been anticipating today’s grand adventure for months! We got tickets to Immersive Van Gogh San Francisco as soon as we got vaccinated. We couldn’t wait to be surrounded by these incredible giant projections of animated masterpieces!
On the hour-and-a-half drive, Mama and I admitted to each other we felt anxious about being indoors with a crowd of strangers. So we were thrilled for the social distancing circles on the floor and mask requirement. Today was our second trip with Mama’s new all-terrain wheels and it went much better.
We struggled to find the ADA drop-off spot, but we lucked out with nearby street parking. Immersive Van Gogh staff used golf carts to transport guests with disabilities to the exhibit on the top floor. Our cart driver Erik was very kind, took great care loading Mama’s chair, and even brought us the posters and cushions included with our ticket.
The exhibit was extraordinary! Wow! Mama and I watched the whole loop over a second time and loved it! I kept turning us around to see new angles. The experience was ethereal and mesmerizing. It felt like we could see the brushstrokes, like we were stepping into the paintings, into Vincent’s world. Check out how the paintings move in the short videos we took (at the bottom).
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was mesmerizing Van Gogh! Thanks to Immersive Van Gogh for an otherworldly experience and kind staff! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!
