Imagine Van Gogh, the ORIGINAL Exhibition in Image Totale© has sold more than 500,000 tickets across Canada this past year and is looking forward to opening in Boston and Tacoma later this year. The exhibition features more than 200 of the Dutch artist’s paintings.

Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, renowned for their work at Cathédrale d’Images in Les Baux-de-Provence, France, are the Artistic Directors behind the creation of the Imagine Van Gogh. The unique exhibit brings Van Gogh’s canvases to life in a vivid, spectacular way: the audience will truly enter the artist’s world of dreams; visitors are literally transported on a journey to the heart of the artist’s work.

As COVID cases are now on a significant downward trend, we have hope that the pandemic is easing to such a level that we may reduce interventions. Based on new Washington State, King and Pierce County policies, guidance, and suggested best practices, Tacoma Arts Live will end the requirement that patrons show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test as of March 12, 2022. Masks are strongly encouraged for everyone in attendance. At most ticketed events, seats are reserved, and will not be socially distanced. Please note that VIVID: A Fundraiser for Arts Access & Education will still require proof of a vaccination or a negative test.

We will continue to require Tacoma Arts Live staff, volunteers, and artists to be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative Covid-19 test within 72-hours of an event, plus wear masks during all public events.

Thank you for your support and loyalty as Tacoma Arts Live continues to make decisions to protect our community. If you find yourself unable to attend because of continuing concerns about exposure to the virus, please consider making a donation, becoming a member, or purchasing a gift certificate.

Any further changes to our procedures will be communicated via email, website, and social media.


Cleaning procedures. ASM Global and Tacoma Arts Live will remain vigilant to cleaning high-touch surfaces such as elevator buttons, doors, railings, counters, and restrooms frequently.

Screening for symptoms. Staff, volunteers, and artists will be requested to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms daily (fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, etc.). We request that all patrons self-screen for symptoms prior to arrival as well. If you are ill, please stay home. If you need to make arrangements for your existing tickets due to a COVID-19 related illness or exposure, contact Tacoma Arts Live Box Office at 253.346.1721.

As always, remember to wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer if hand washing is not available.
“In 2008, Annabelle Mauger created her first immersive Van Gogh exhibition, building off what she learned about immersive experiences from her husband’s grandfather, who created an early model known as Image Totale©. She has continued to adapt it, working with an art historian to present the last two years of the artist’s life. She wanted people to appreciate the details of van Gogh’s artwork and his thick and sometimes violent-looking brush strokes without the barrier of a frame.”
