Van Gogh presentation to celebrate artist’s 170th birthday


“Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” produced by Paquin Entertainment Group, is celebrating Vincent Van Gogh’s birthday in Jacksonville on Thursday, March 30. The experience will offer free admission for select guests and a sweet treat to enjoy in honor of the iconic artist. The experience, which has sold more than 5 million tickets globally, has become one of today’s most popular current traveling exhibitions.

Patrons will enjoy a complimentary sweet treat from Sweet Pete’s (while supplies last), and free admission for anyone who shares Vincent’s name or birthday. This promotional birthday offer is valid only for performances on March 30; a photo ID is required. 

“Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” celebrates 300 of the post-Impressionist artist's greatest works, taking them from their two-dimensional form and transforming them into a three-dimensional experience that enthralls the senses. “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” is at the NoCo Center in Jacksonville through April 30; tickets for newly extended dates are available now.

“Vincent is an icon in the art world, and we are excited to have been able to share his gifts with the Jacksonville community over the last six months,” said Justin Paquin, producer, Paquin Entertainment Group. “Honoring Vincent’s birthday in Jacksonville gives us the opportunity to celebrate with local businesses and the community that has welcomed us. We look forward to sharing this special day with our friends in Northeast Florida, and even more exciting art experiences in this market.” 

“Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” has celebrated many milestones in the Jacksonville market. The experience has been enjoyed by more than 100,000 patrons on the First Coast and beyond and given back to the community through sponsored field trips, events and a fundraiser for the local Feeding America food bank arm, Feeding Northeast Florida. During a food drive held at the venue last month, guests donated more than 170 pounds of dry groceries, creating more than 140 meals for those in need in the community.
