The Beyond Monet exhibition immerses you in the universe of the impressionist painter Claude Monet – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports
Sure, seeing the greatest art in the world in Paris, Rome, and New York sounds great, but it’s very expensive to do. So an exhibition brings hundreds of the most famous Impressionist paintings here to SoFlo.
Deco’s artwork, while abstract, Alex Miranda has the details.
French artist Claude Monet is so iconic, even his brushwork is famous, and a Monet exhibit in Miami is so immersive, someone here said he felt engulfed, and I hardly ever hear that word used.
Amber wasn’t exactly Cher’s cup of tea in “Clueless.”
But if art history was a high school, Claude Monet would be totally popular.
David Rosenfeld, Beyond Monet Miami: “He is considered the most important impressionist of all time.”
And there aren’t many real Monets floating around South Florida…so how about seeing 400 of his most iconic works instead?
David Rosenfeld: “A 360 entirely [degree] immersive projection, recreating the painting, bringing it to life.
Enter the multi-sensory Beyond Monet at Ice Palace Studios in Miami, where you can explore 50,000 square feet of his genius mind.
David Rosenfeld: “You get to know him, get to know his art. Enter the gardens and its lilies.
And while I was at it, Impressionism is a style that focuses a lot on the outdoors, on everyday life – not just all that fancy stuff. There is therefore a lot of light and movement, which translates quite poetically into the 4,000 billion pixels of this cutting-edge technology.
Sheryl Marshall: “I’ve seen the Monets, and the Lilies in particular, in museums all over the world, and seeing them displayed this way was just an incredible treat.”
And we haven’t even reached the best. In the immersion room, the paintings are even projected onto the ceiling!
Sheryl Marshall: “I was engulfed in Monet’s world, and just consumed by his work and the brushstrokes and a size and landscape that I had never experienced before.”
Combined with music and sound effects, it all sounds like a dream, says this Boston art collector.
Art Collector: “Breathtaking, in a way, and the way people moved around, that was really something.”
The exhibition is open from Wednesday to Sunday until April. Tickets are $27 for children and $47 for adults.
David Rosenfeld: “You can enjoy the cafeteria outside. There’s music to enjoy, fun things for the kids to do.
Beyond Monet is not open on Mondays, but they make an exception this Monday for Valentine’s Day only.
