Immersive Monet & The Impressionists is a tantalizing exploration of vibrant colors on a jaw-dropping scale – step inside to be swept away! The Impressionists were radicals that shook up the art world in the 19th century. Striving to capture the ever-elusive effects of sunlight and movement in expressive brushstrokes, they captured both the transient nature of beauty, and the timeless beauty of nature. From Monet’s celebrated water lilies to Degas’s graceful dancers and so much more, step inside living paintings at Immersive Monet & The Impressionists!
