The former Amoeba Music building on Sunset Boulevard, near Ivar Avenue, will be the home of the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit, which is set to open July 31, organizers announced Tuesday.
“The former Amoeba Music is an iconic Los Angeles location with a rich history in music, arts and entertainment and Immersive Van Gogh exhibit is the perfect blend of all of those things,” co-producer Svetlana Dvoretsky said.
Tickets for the exhibit sold out before buyers knew the location where it would be housed. Organizers plan to release more tickets at noon Saturday.
The 25,000-square-foot space became available after Amoeba moved to a new location after closing during statewide COVID-19 restrictions on non- essential businesses. The building had been home to the Amoeba store since November 2001.
Immersive Van Gogh features large-scale projections of information about the 19th century Dutch Post-Impressionist painter and images of some of his most iconic works, including Starry Night, The Bedroom and Sunflowers.
“Impact Museums is thrilled to bring this one-of-a-kind experience to life in the heart of Los Angeles where the arts are ingrained in the city’s culture,” co-producer Diana Rayzman said. “While Amoeba has since moved locations, their former location will now become an arts and culture center in the heart of Los Angeles featuring a variety of different immersive experiences.”
