Watch Monet’s paintings come to life in a new immersive art exhibit

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Honolulu’s newest art experience, “Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience,” lets visitors of all ages step into more than 400 images of Claude Monet’s paintings.

The French Impressionist was best known for his colorful brushstrokes, depicting natural wonders such as flowers, water, trees, and the changing seasons.

With over 30,000 square feet of space, Hawaii Convention Center exhibit guests will have the opportunity to stand on renditions of Monet’s most iconic garden bridges while taking in the sights and sounds of some of his most iconic landscape works.

Notable paintings such as “Water Lilies”, “Impression, Sunrise” and “Poppies at Argenteuil” are featured during the high-resolution show, which runs on 35-minute rotations.

Fanny Curtat, the art historian of “Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience,” says you don’t need to know much about Monet to enjoy the experience.

“For many people, museums can be intimidating. And so it’s a great way for this project to bring people in and introduce them to the artwork,” Curtat said.

The show debuted in Toronto, Canada and made its way to Honolulu after last year’s hit, “Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience,” according to Curtat.

Ticket prices vary but start at $35. The exhibition runs from Wednesday to July 31.

Things to know before you go:

  • Tickets start at $35.
  • The experience will take about an hour in total.
  • This is a walking tour, with limited seating.
  • Parking is available on site.
  • Phones and cameras are allowed in the exhibition.

Tickets are on a timed entry system and can be purchased here.
