Van Gogh Immersive Experience

Take a journey to explore the wonderment of art through the paintings of one of the
most influential artists of all time, Vincent van Gogh. Cincinnati is currently one of the
lucky chosen cities to feature the traveling exhibition that’s getting attention all over the
world! The immersive show is full of fascinating information about the life and work
of the artist along with the most incredible visuals that will have you in sheer awe at the
sight. The entire experience wakes up your senses and opens your mind to gain a
deeper appreciation for creativity and culture.

van Gogh's Immersive Experience in Cincinnati, OH.
van Gogh’s Immersive Experience Banner

As you step inside of the exhibit you are greeted by a large sculpture of van Gogh’s
portrait. There is an overlay of his paintings projected onto the sculpture that dash and
dance over the surface mimicking the mind of the artist and how he interpreted things.
The show starts off with a timeline of his life to give you an idea of his background that
is educational and filled with fascinating facts. Van Gogh was a complex and
compelling artist and is probably the most well-known and recognizable painters in
history.

The Exhibit

Throughout the exhibit, you will find many quotes by van Gogh that are thought provoking
and motivational. The paintings themselves offer a glimpse into the artist’s compassion
and connection to nature and the quotes support them. “If you truly love nature, you will
find beauty everywhere.” By pairing his words with his paintings, you become
enthralled by the magnificent emotion that radiates through the work. Along with quotes
are sketches of the artist in progress work that shows you his process and how
everything started.


When you go further into the exhibition you come across engaging story projections that
reveal the techniques and skills of the artist that have audio descriptions that help guide
you through the work. There is another statue of a vase that changes into different
paintings of his flower series that shows gestural bursts of energy with each brush
stroke.

Additions to the Exhibit

There’s a small bar for refreshments, with a specialty cocktail in honor of the popular
painting, Starry Night. It’s a delicious drink to sip on while you walk around and watch
the visual displays. If you’re feeling compelled to make art in the likeness of van Gogh’s,
head to the section of the show for a reference to a studio where you can draw and color in pages of some of his famous pieces.


This show brings Vincent van Gogh’s paintings to life! It’s as if you’re inside of the
painting as it’s being created. The most spectacular part is the massive room with moving images all around you that has enchanting music playing in the distance. You
open a set of curtains to enter a large open space that is inviting and instantly impacts
you with overwhelming beauty. The projections are 2 stories high and are absolutely
stunning. There are multiple lounge areas and plenty of chairs to relax in and gaze at
the artwork as it transforms, shifts, and transcends you into a different dimension of
dazzling delight! There are rhythmic patterns of animated brushstrokes that go across
the wall in a 360-degree angle with movement of captivating colors and textures all
around you. It’s like stepping into a dream world that brings to light all the endless
opportunities that art has. Take it all in, this expressive atmosphere is something to sit
with for as long as you can.


There is a one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality experience that you can participate in that takes
you to a day in the life of Vincent van Gogh. Walk through a charming town in Europe
that the artist spent time in and where he found some of his sources of inspiration for his
work. As you take the same footsteps as he once did, you approach specific locations
that are 8 of his paintings and learn about why he painted them. Giving you a better
understanding of who he was and the things he did.

Where to Catch van Gogh’s Work

Another super cool aspect of this exhibition being in Cincinnati is that even though it
won’t be here forever you can still see Vincent van Gogh’s work in Eden Park. The
Cincinnati Art Museum has an original painting, Undergrowth with Two Figures in their
permanent collection, that was completed in June 1890. Visit the museum anytime for
free to view this painting and be moved by it in person!


The immersive experience will be here until November and takes about an hour to
two hours to view and enjoy. It’s located on 18 West Fourth Street 45202, Downtown Cincinnati and is for
all ages to attend!

Connecting Art, Science, and Nature

The Science of Color Featuring Prismatica

One of the most captivating art installations that has ever come to Cincinnati is
currently being showcased at the Krohn Conservatory in Eden Park. The traveling
exhibition, The Science of Color Featuring Prismatica completely transforms the
environment into an interactive kaleidoscope of fascination and fun. This immersive
show has incredible spinning prisms of iridescents that are mesmerizing and exciting to
engage with. These transparent geodesic forms give off a magical effect that reflects
beautiful colors that change with every single angle. Light transmits different hues
throughout the space offering an entirely new perspective and experience of the
Conservatory that is absolutely enchanting!

The concept and development of this series involves many talented collaborators
that come from a variety of different backgrounds such as RAW Design– a Toronto-based
architectural firm, ATOMIC3– a multimedia group of light design installations, and the
Creos production team. The director of Krohn said, “We’re excited to bring a show like
this to Cincinnati. We wanted people to experience and understand the colors that they
see in the natural world. There’s a lot of pigments and interactions with pollinators that
take place that are very important to the sustainability of our planet.”

As you walk into the main entrance, you’re greeted with a few of the mystifying
sculptures that lead you into the Seasonal Floral Showroom where the majority of the
art pieces are located. Each dichroic prism is about 6 feet tall and is made up of panels
that reflects natural light that is shining in from the glass ceiling of the Conservatory
giving off a spectrum of rainbow colors. The show extends into the Bonsai Gallery,
Orchid House, and ends in the Desert House. Take your time wandering among the
prisms, you’re encouraged to manipulate every single one. Enjoy the infinite interplay
of light and colorful reflections that they create as you spin the structures and move
around them. Throughout the greenhouse there are interesting facts about the science
of color that are entertaining and educational to discover. Learn how flowers get their
color and what butterflies and bees see through the perspective of a pollinator. The
connections that are made through this installation between Art, Science, and Nature
are compelling with luminous layers of color and meaning.

Experience the Krohn Conservatory in a way you’ve never seen before with the
spectacular art show Primatica any day of the week from 10am – 8pm until October
16th, 2022 and don’t forget to interact with the art all around you!

The Great Brewery Roundup

August 5 is International Beer Day, so to celebrate the occasion, we are filling you up with all the local beer knowledge you need to get out and enjoy all of the wonderful brewery and beer options our great city has to offer.

What makes a brewery great is so much more than just having good beer. Sure, that helps, but there are so many other qualities that go into a taproom to make it stand out. The overall taproom experience includes the ambiance, food options, and other events and “amenities” (like having games and being kid or even dog friendly). The good thing? Cincinnati has an abundance of great craft breweries.

Murals with Positive Messages

Cincinnati has influential art around every corner. One of the best things about this city
is the incredible number of murals all over town! The area is known for showcasing
local creators and world-renowned artists with public art in every neighborhood that is
convenient and fun to find! You can take a nice leisure walk, cruise on a city bike, or
ride around in your car to access many art pieces displayed freely for anyone to enjoy.
Embark on a journey to see murals with positive messages and meaning that goes
deeper than the surfaces they are painted on. These works offer a chance to be in the
present moment, to reflect and be inspired and to elevate your state of mind. So, keep
your eyes and hearts open to encounter and be encouraged by Cincinnati art!

Keep Moving, Keep Playing, Keep Dreaming Mural

Where To Find

In the West End, there are three large wall pieces with beautiful words that will make
you smile with happy thoughts when you see them! These huge murals have
motivational phrases painted on brick in bold letters on the side of the Seven Hills
Neighborhood House building. SHNH is a wonderful local resource and community
gathering space at the corner of Findlay and Baymiller Street. ArtWorks partnered with
them to create murals commemorating the life and work of Susan O’Malley, the original
creator of the designs. Their team carefully selected enthusiastic messages from
Susan’s work to share with residents or anyone just passing through.

Encouraging Mural in Cincinnati
Artwork by: Susan O’Malley

From left to right, there are three quotes placed side by side which come together as a
tryptic to create a positive narrative. They work as separate statements, as well as a
sequence of different affirmations with similar subject matter and style. This creates a
lively conversation that unifies them and reaches out to connect with the viewer. Each
section has a fade of colors seamlessly flowing behind the text. They are both
aesthetically pleasing and comforting to experience!

The first sentiment starts off with the words “IT IS POSSIBLE”, initially welcoming the
viewer to believe in themselves and imagine everything they can accomplish. The
second panel has a delightful rainbow background that says, “KEEP MOVING KEEP
PLAYING KEEP DREAMING”, a friendly reminder to follow your passions and never
give up. Last but not least, “YOU ARE SMARTER AND STRONGER THAN YOU
REALIZE”, sending out an endearing confirmation that everyone is capable of
succeeding! All three of these amazing pieces cohesively connect in an effort to
promote self-empowerment and reassurance that you can achieve anything!
The concept of displaying artwork that expresses positivity is to create a sense of
solidarity that is uplifting and helpful to the environment and community.

By taking in the art in Cincinnati, you gain a better understanding of the importance of
an artist, the work they create, and the role it plays in society. These murals bring out
the true essence of what art is all about and how it can be a source of good energy and
support. We hope to see more murals with positive messages pop up around town and
pick up our spirits at every turn.

IGNITE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES NEW CONCEPT: A New Era Begins for Iconic Cincinnati Bar and Restaurant

Cincinnati, Ohio, Thursday, June 30th — Ignite Entertainment is thrilled to announce the opening of the former, longstanding In Between Tavern. In Between Tavern is an iconic Cincinnati bar and restaurant located directly across from Great American Ballpark. This fifteenth concept to launch under the Ignite Entertainment Community makes the company one of the largest locally owned and operated hospitality groups in Cincinnati.

Welcoming The In Between Tavern

The original In Between Tavern began serving the home team and visitors an unmatched game day experience in 1969. The bar was closed in 2016, and the building was sold to the most recent owners who opened Corner Bistro, operating through early 2021. In Between Tavern became a staple for game days from the beginning, and in the new era, owner Juan Imeroni has revived, yet carefully preserved this Cincinnati destination while putting the “Ignite touch” on the venue. The bar features roughly 4500 sq ft of indoor and outdoor space, a freshly updated, expansive outdoor space, opportunities for private events in an indoor area off the main bar, and a fun and unique Cincinnati-themed lunch and pre-game menu.

What’s New

In Between’s menu has been curated to showcase Cincinnati’s love for sports and affinity for pork and sausages. Offerings come from local butchers, including Avril Bleh, Wassler’s, and Redden’s, available as “Cincinnati-Style Dogs” and BallparkStyle Dogs,” aptly named for the city’s eclectic neighborhoods and favorite sports rivalries. The menu additionally offers Smash-Burgers, available as a single 4oz patty, or as a double, triple, or home run (four patties), available with any of the four styles of burgers. The menu is rounded out with additional sandwiches, a selection of salads, wraps, and appetizers, including Authentic Argentine Empanadas from sister business, Ché in Over-the-Rhine.

Bringing back to life an iconic destination like In Between is a dream” said owner, Juan Imeroni. “It’s everything I love about this city, in an amazing location, and we’ll serve the home team and visitors alike, just like they did here previously, for over fifty years. We’ve made some upgrades, and done some fine-tuning, but otherwise, we wanted to preserve all the Cincinnati sports history that was here before, add to to it, and make it a place for people to enjoy what’s on the walls and tables around them just as much as they enjoy the food and drinks.”

In addition to the revamped outdoor space, Imeroni is adding a retractable garage door opening in the main bar, bringing both the indoor and outdoor space together, with plans to extend the retractable door opening later this year. A dedicated private event space has been carved out in the annexed room that will be able to entertain groups of up to fifty guests, and comfortable lounge seating has been brought in to enjoy the games on the nearly twenty flat screen TVs.

Opening Date

In Between Tavern hosted a soft opening event on Saturday, June 25th, with Bengal Jim’s “Jungle to the Hall” event, rallying for select Bengals players to be enshrined in the Football Hall of Fame, in Canton, Ohio. The event was attended by over 200 Bengal’s fans, and featured past Bengal’s greats, with a themed scavenger hunt, door prizes, and music. Tickets for the event were sold out, and benefitted three local charities: the Ken Anderson Alliance, the Ken Riley Foundation, and the Cincinnati Music Accelerator.

In Between Tavern opens to the public on Monday, July 11th and will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. For more information, follow In Between Tavern on social media. (@InBetweenCincy on Facebook)
