All over the world, immersive art exhibitions are providing a new way for people to enjoy famous paintings. The latest of these shows celebrates the father of Impressionism, Claude Monet, in a never-before-seen experience of his work. Installed at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Beyond Monet spans 50,000 square feet, making it the “largest immersive experience in Canada.”

Each room of the convention center captures a different facet of the painter’s creative life. The Garden Gallery, for instance, focuses on Monet’s “emotions and perspectives.” Likewise, the oval-shaped Infinity Room is covered from floor to ceiling with the artist’s vibrant paintings, while an original musical score complements the viewing experience. “You truly feel like you are a part of the bright and colorful world of Claude Monet rather than a spectator,” says Justin Paquin, co-producer and director of live entertainment at Paquin Entertainment Group.

Over 400 paintings from Monet’s oeuvre are showcased at the exhibition.
