Immersive Monet at the Saunders Castle

We are delighted to welcome “Immersive Monet & The Impressionists” to The Saunders Castle!

Produced by Lighthouse Immersive, this innovative art exhibition features the works of Claude Monet, Pierre-August Renoir and Edgar Degas as large-scale projections, including 90 million pixels, 500,000 cubic feet of projections and 1.2 million frames of video. It is the most recent installment in the Lighthouse ArtSpace at the Castle series of immersive art shows.

In the words of producer Cory Ross, “Claude Monet and his peers are inspirational figures in art history and natural choices for an immersive experience. The spontaneity of Impressionism is expressed in movement and color, two mediums that our state-of-the-art projection systems present quite well! Projection mapping and immersive experiences are shaking up the art world much like Monet and his contemporaries did with their groundbreaking Impressionism.”

According to Carly Wanna in Bloomberg Businessweek,

“[At the Saunders Castle] 40 projectors flood about 15,000 square feet of the historic armory with images of the impressionist painter’s masterpieces. During the 40-minute viewing, the music pairs soft melodies with bright poppies and crescendos of grand overtures with darker silhouettes.

Opened on June 16, ‘Immersive Monet & The Impressionists’ fills 25-foot-tall walls with works from its headliner, as well as counterparts Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s boating party, Mary Cassatt’s Little Girl in a Blue Armchair, and Edgar Degas’s ballet dancers. Guests can do as they please in the space: stand in the center, sit on benches, or plop down on the floor. There’s no one right way to experience immersion.”
