The Art Institute of Chicago has teamed up with Airbnb to enable guests to stay in its latest installation, a recreation of Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles painting. The rental was built to promote a new exhibition, Van Gogh’s Bedrooms, that opens at the museum on February 14 and runs until May 10. The exhibition is the first time that all three versions of the painting will be shown in North America.
This room will make you feel like you’re living in a painting. It’s decorated in a Post-Impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by. Its furniture, bright colors, and artwork will give you the experience of a lifetime.
Right now, there are no longer dates available to rent the room in February, but the Art Institute of Chicago plans to release more rentals in the near future. “The available dates went much faster than anyone could have expected,” the museum posted on its Facebook official page. “We’ll be sharing available dates in March in the next couple of weeks.”
“I’m charging $10 for no other reason than that I need to buy paint,” says the description of the room, written as though it were penned Vincent Van Gogh. “However, I will be happy to provide you with tickets to my exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago.”
