Just before the show finished up, we visited the Monet and Friends art exhibition, held in Moore Park’s Royal Hall of Industries. This exhibition came to us following the success of the Van Gough display last year.
This particular exhibit showcased the work of Monet as well as other 19th century impressionists such as Cézanne, Degas’, Toulouse-Lautrec’s and Renoir.
Paintings were delivered as light installations and roving artwork projected through the screens. It was essentially a multi-sensory experience with lights, sound and a walk through one of Monet’s artworks made life size.
First you learn about each artist and their work, before taking a photo on Monet’s bridge overlooking a replica of his garden.
Monet’s brilliance and that of other impressionists danced across multiple screens in the main room where the art was projected through light, a cool and mesmerising way to experience the art in different forms. Supported by a wonderful playlist of contemporaneous music, such as that by, Tchaikovsky, Ravel and Offenbach, providing for a relaxing and cultured experience.
Although it was $50 a ticket, you could use your dine and discover voucher for $25. I took my folks and we all thoroughly enjoyed this day out.
