The LUME at Newfields is nearly 30,000 square feet of immersive digital art from the works of Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh.

The Lume debuts at Newfields on Tuesday.

Guests will be able to walk through nearly 30,000 square feet of immersive digital art from the works of Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh.

Jerry Wise, interim president and chief financial officer, said it will be the first time guests have an opportunity to experience a digital gallery on this scale at an art museum in the United States.

“It’s really a rare opportunity for the public to see so many Van Gogh’s in one place and we’re excited by it to have it here in Indianapolis,” Wide said. “Not only is it the best we are bringing here in Indianapolis, but it gives people here a chance to see things that otherwise they would have to travel for -- this rich experience.”

The content of The Lume will rotate annually, but the technology and infrastructure for the digital galleries are permanent.

The Lume was created by Australian-based Grande Experiences, who has held more than 190 exhibitions and experiences in more than 145 cities worldwide.
