A Night in Van Gogh’s Bedroom

To promote the Art Institute of Chicagos new Van Gogh exhibit, the Art Institute recreated one of Van Goghs most intimate paintings, The Bedroom and, through a partnership with Airbnb, invited people to spend a night inside. Van Gogh hosted the room himself. Working from original documentation supplied by the Art Institute, craftsmen spent four weeks recreating the room. As a result, instead of just looking at a Van Gogh painting, people could live inside one, bringing them closer to the artist than ever before.
