Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is proud to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada, and Great Basin Brewing Company, to support kids and teens in the community, with an artistic, donation drive focusing on influential artist Vincent Van Gogh, leading up to the exhibitions debut on Friday, August 19, 2022.
In alignment with Artown’s launch in July, Great Basin Brewing Company will be promoting Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience beginning July 5 at all three restaurant locations (Carson City, Reno, and Sparks). For $1, diners receive a Van Gogh coloring page and can display it on the restaurant’s walls, and all proceeds will go towards Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada.
Produced by Paquin Entertainment Group, Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience has sold more than 3 million tickets globally. The exhibition is an immersive, multimedia gallery consisting of more than 4 trillion pixels displaying 300 Van Gogh artworks in high resolution and will be held at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center from August through October.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada is urgently seeking new volunteer mentors to participate in upcoming partnership activities with Beyond Van Gogh, as well as donations to support local children and teens in the program. Currently, there are more than 100 children in the northern Nevada community on the waiting list to be matched with a “Big”.
