Immersive Van Gogh

Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago, a brand new venue in Chicago’s Germania Club will open Feb. of 2021.

The recently renovated building will open to the U.S. premiere of Immersive Van Gogh. The building’s Victorian Era, 35-foot-tall walls will show off art exhibitions that completely encapsulate an audience, blurring the lines between entertainment and culture, art and blockbuster creation.

Immersive Van Gogh received rave reviews from critics and a wide array of audiences in Toronto, as it allowed them to step inside the iconic, emotional, imaginative artist Vincent Van Gogh.

The Toronto Sun called Immersive Van Gogh “intense and emotional, cathartic and liberating” while Debra Yeo of the Toronto Star said,  “I wondered: could projections of paintings on walls and floors be thrilling? The answer is yes.”

More than 180,000 guests were able to see the exhibition in July 2020, and it passed worldwide ticket sales for any of Ticketmaster’s live cultural events.

Tickets will be available beginning Nov. 23 at 11 a.m. CST. You can find them by clicking right here, or you can call (844) 307-4644. Admission begins at $39.99, or $24.99 for children 16 years old or younger.

The tickets will be for viewings from Feb. 11 to May 2, and parking is available at the James House parking garage, conveniently located nearby.

Given the world’s current state of affairs, the experience also makes health and safety a priority, as admissions will align with Chicago’s capacity guidelines.

Tickets will also be taken contact-free, temperatures will be taken upon arrival and hand sanitizer stations will be open. Markers throughout the exhibit will also remind guests to socially distant as they get sucked into the world of Van Gogh. Face masks will be required.

The same Italian creative team that pioneered Atelier des Lumières will create a design custom to the exhibition’s home in Chicago.

The exhibition was designed by Massimiliano Siccardi, an Italian film producer, with help from composer Luca Longobardi, who delivers a score that combines electronic music with piano, blending modern and classic tones to evoke the perfect tone for the experience. Vittorio Guidotti is the art director.

Siccardi and Longobardi created the Van Gogh, Starry Night exhibition together, setting them up for Immersive Van Gogh, which features more than 50 projectors that cover more than 14,000 square-feet.

Siccardi said Van Gogh has created a lasting emotional impact despite going relatively unknown while he was alive.

“Both myself and Luca Longobardi are very excited to visit Chicago and once again bring Van Gogh’s legacy to life in a way that is unique to the beautiful architecture of the Germania Club Building,” Siccardi said.

Some of the most notable pieces featured include Self Portrait with Felt Hat, The Bedroom in Arles, Irises and The Starry Night.

Corey Ross, the co-producer of Immersive Art Space, said Immersive Van Gogh is a new way to consume art from all directions.

“Both connoisseurs and new admirers of Van Gogh’s work are guaranteed a breathtaking perspective on the influential artist’s oeuvre,” Ross said. “Merging state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, animation and some of the finest works of art ever created, Immersive Van Gogh is a uniquely mesmerizing experience that seemingly transports the viewer into the artist’s mind to see these timeless works as never before.

Elyptol Sanitizers Clean × Heal

Elyptol is the first Type 1 eco-certified and professionally registered hand sanitizer. It harnesses the healing properties of eucalyptus oil and naturally-sourced pure ethanol to bring you a product that sanitizes in a healthy and eco-friendly way. Despite its gentle feel, make no mistake that this hand sanitizer is FDA listed and hospital grade.

To Kill Germs Gently, Think Naturally with Elyptol

The sanitizer kills 99.99997% of germs with 70% alcohol. It contains eucalyptus oil and pure ethanol derived from sugar cane to eliminate germs gently and safely. And, it uses botanical food grade ethanol and eucalyptus ingredients that are known for soothing and healing aching bones and irritated skin.

Not only is Elyptol antibacterial, but it is antimicrobial as well. For this reason, it kills a wider range of germs.

“The perfect synergy of science and nature,” notes the company on their front page. “Elyptol harnesses nature’s strengths to create skincare and hard surface hygiene products that effectively kill germs harmful to your health.”

About Elyptol:

The USA/Australian company takes its natural inspiration from those putting their lives on the line for us every day. Elyptol founder Tim O’Connor recognized just how much health care workers used sanitizers when his daughter was born. These hospital grade formulas wreaked havoc on their hands. With years of extensive research and development using green chemistry, Elyptol became the first Type 1 eco-certified and professionally registered hand sanitizer. It expertly pairs eucalyptus oil, known for its healing properties, and natural sanitizing ingredient pure ethanol, derived from sugarcane and corn. The result is an efficient formula that eliminates germs, yet it’s gentle enough on skin and safe for the environment.

HAND × NAIL CARE

How to prevent hands from cracking and staying hydrated:

•Moisturize one to two times a day with a cream such as Cerave Cream or Aveeno Eczema Cream.

•Choosing a fragrance-free formula is also a good idea.

•It is generally best to opt for cleansers that only have gentle ingredients.

Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel prevents dryness without clogging pores and absorbs into the skin quickly without leaving any residue and is perfect for year-round use.

•Avoid antibacterial soap, which can be drying. Unless you’re instructed to use antibacterial soap for medical reasons, then just use the regular stuff instead.

•I don’t think you can use too many products as they will all be absorbed into your skin.

•Other products can be added to target specific concerns, like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid for acne, or hyaluronic acid for irritation or dryness.

How to prevent nails becoming brittle and weaker and advice for strengthening your nails:

•Wear gloves when hand washing dishes or cleaning.

•Do not use antibacterial soap. 

•Moisturize cuticles with Aquaphor, Vaseline or CND Solar Oil.

DermaNail Conditioner – use twice a day; Helps dry, brittle nails.

•Biotin – a vitamin which accelerates nail growth (My favorite is vitafusion Gummies for Hair, Skin, and Nails because it contains a good amount of Biotin and is also a multivitamin).

•Keep nails short; file nails gently; avoid nail trauma (such as using them to open packages or remove lids from cans).

•For soft nails – use Nailtiques 2 Plus Lacquer or Sally Hansen Advanced Hard as Nails Strengthener.

•Use nail polish remover that does not contain acetone.

Top Five Tips For Avoiding Colds and Flu This Season

1. Take It Easy. Stress is a sure way to compromise your immune system. Be sure to make sure that you are taking care of yourself and making time to rest and restore in order to keep your stress levels at a minimum.

2. Take Vitamin C. Supplementing your diet with Vitamin C is a great way to ward of colds and flu. We don’t typically get enough Vitamin C from our diets alone, so a supplement is often the best way to go. Vitafusion makes a Vitamin C gummy that is easy to take, and a great way to get your daily dose of Vitamin C.

3. Avoid Closed Places. Cold and flu viruses spread via the air, so try to avoid spending too much time indoors where there may be people who are sick (like shopping malls). Try to get outdoors as much as you can, as the brisk air can be great for your health and also very refreshing.

4. Wash Your Hands, and Face. Washing your hands is a no-brainer, but don’t forget to wash your face! We often touch our face with our hands, and germs can be sitting there just waiting to invade. 

5. Use Sanitizer. Keeping your work and home areas clean of viruses is important. Use sanitizer to wipe down the places where germs might be lingering, such as door knobs, bathrooms, faucet handles, and keyboards.
