The Kimpton Schofield Hotel in downtown Cleveland announced its one-of-a-kind experience for art lovers and vacationers alike using state-of-the-art technology and immersive storytelling. To create this unique experience, The Schofield partnered with “Original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit Cleveland” and worked with Mike Wiertel of Liquid Image Corporation of America.

In this suite overlooking East Ninth Street, guests can feel as if they are within the Dutch Post Impressionist’s paintings. From relaxing under the stars featured in “A Starry Night” to laying among a wheat field from his “Wheat Fields Near Auvers 1888,” guests will find themselves fully surrounded by the colors and textures that make Van Gogh’s art so mesmerizing and special.

“Staying in a beautiful suite wrapped in Van Gogh’s greatest works is definitely a one-of-a-kind way to extend the sense of immersion associated with the exhibit,” said Jordan Nye, director of sales and marketing, Kimpton Schofield Hotel. “Whether unwinding in the suite or experiencing some of our other amenities, this will be a beautiful, different and sought-after experience, exclusive to the Kimpton Schofield and to Cleveland.”

The exhibition consists of more than 500,000 cubic feet of projections, more than 60,000 frames of video and around 90 million pixels. Each detail seeks to create a unique experience for every guest wanting to see Van Gogh’s artwork up close.

Guests staying at the exclusive suite will first come upon the exterior door wrapped in Van Gogh’s “Country Road in Provence by Night.” Once within the suite, guests are then met with a 360-degree experience of “Wheat Fields Near Auvers 1888,” transforming the living room into the vast fields of yellows and oranges of the French town Auvers-sur-Oise.

The bathroom continues the colorful display with Van Gogh’s “Almond Blossom” adorning the walls to calm guests and depict a beauty Van Gogh saw in these blossoming trees. As guests prepare for bed, the iconic “A Starry Night” will illuminate the room to make guests feel as if they are truly sleeping under Van Gogh’s magical stars.

Cleveland-based Wiertel of Liquid Image Corporation of America remarked, “Partnering with the Schofield to create a one-of-a-kind suite was a great opportunity to offer people an exceptional and unique experience they cannot find anywhere else. The popularity of the exhibit, coupled with a personal immersive experience, is exceptionally fun and unique.”

In addition to the immersive suite experience, The Schofield also offers guests a non-immersive date night room featuring Champagne and chocolate as well as two reserved tickets in the VIP Room at the immersive exhibit.

While The Schofield in Cleveland is the home of this innovative experience, the Van Gogh exhibit can also be found in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Orlando, Phoenix and several more, allowing everyone to experience this special exhibition.
