Building on the global success of Beyond Van Gogh which has sold over 3 million tickets, producer Paquin Entertainment Group will open Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience presented by We Energies Foundation on Thursday, October 20 at the Wisconsin Center.
The exhibition showcases more than 400 of Claude Monet’s most iconic works of impressionism—including the Water Lilies series, Impression: Sunrise and Poppies.
Brought to life by Mathieu St-Arnaud, Félix Fradet-Faguy and the creative team at Normal Studio, he show sheds new light on Monet.
“Combining technology with pieces that were crafted to perfection, Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience presented by We Energies Foundation is redefining what art means to people,” says Gilles Paquin, producer and CEO, Paquin Entertainment Group. “It has elevated artwork to the next level, allowing us to form new relationships with notable masterpieces that were just not possible in previous years.”
After entering the Garden Gallery, the Prism transports visitors into the biggest feature area of the exhibit.
Taking inspiration from Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, the designated home of Monet’s masterpieces, guests can freely roam the oval-shaped Infinity Room to absorb the artist’s bright and colorful paintings the way they were intended.
Monet’s stunning imagery encompasses every surface of the room from floor to ceiling, transporting guests inside the paintings themselves.
The exhibition “spans 50,000 square feet with over one million cubic feet of space, making it one of the largest immersive experiences in North America,” says Justin Paquin, producer, Paquin Entertainment Group. “You truly feel like you are a part of the bright and colorful world of Claude Monet rather than a spectator.”
“We’re thrilled to partner again with Paquin Entertainment Group to bring another spectacular immersive experience to Milwaukee,” said Marty Brooks, President and CEO of the Wisconsin Center District. “Every guest to the Wisconsin Center can look forward to our signature bold, proud, experience-obsessed delivery of service.”
