Quebec City Van Gogh hopefuls are asked to sign up for the exhibition’s newsletter to be notified for when tickets become available. Guests who sign up for the newsletter will be notified 48 hours before tickets go on sale and will automatically be registered for three prize packages to attend the premiere for free.

First presented in Europe, Imagine Van Gogh is the work of artists Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron. Their approach is to fuse technology with classical art through the use of more than 200 works by the famous painter.

The Imagine Van Gogh exhibit highlights the works of the Arles period (1888-1889) and the end of his life (1890).

Works include Sunflowers, Irises, Starry Night, Wheat Fields, pieces from his Japanesery series, La Mousmé, Portrait of Dr. Gachet, and Van Gogh’s famous self-portrait.
