Imagine Van Gogh, the immersive digital art exhibition taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre, has announced that expanded hours and additional tickets have been added to its upcoming event.
The experience opens to the public on March 19. Tickets for the event went on sale in January but quickly sold out, breaking several records in the process.
A spokesperson for Imagine Van Gogh says that Vancouver “outsold Montreal’s on-sale weekend” and is “on track to break previous Imagine Van Gogh Canadian sales records.”
Ticket quantities have been limited up to this point to “comply with the highest level of all safety standards set for COVID-19.”
