BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — First it was Van Gogh, and now the Lighthouse Artspace At the Castle in Park Plaza, Boston will feature "Immersive Frida Kahlo," an experience that highlights the works of the legendary Mexico-born artist.
The Lighthouse Immersive gallery said that the experience includes large-scale projections of Kahlo's work showcased alongside a musical score.
"Frida Kahlo’s art is not only beautiful on an aesthetic level; it has also become a universal symbol of resilience and perseverance," Lighthouse Immersive said.
WBZ's Matt Shearer got a sneak peek of the gallery set to open on February 10.
"Everything is moving, it's a lot of animation, you see the strokes," said Lighthouse Immersive's Co-producer and Co-founder Maria Shclover. The gallery used 46 projectors, 90,000,000 pixels, and 1,200,000 frames of video to display 500,000 cubic feet of art.
The experience also implemented augmented reality, placing visitors virtually inside the paintings of Kahlo, Shclover said. "You put your phone next to the picture on the wall and then you see you're inside of the picture," Shclover said.
