The 360-degree digital art experience will be presented at Resorts World Sentosa’s (RWS) B1 Forum from March 1 and housed within various galleries occupying a total of more than 17,000 sq ft.
Visitors can take in more than 300 of van Gogh’s sketches, drawings and paintings, with large-scale floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall digital projections. This includes a central area where the digital projections will be most prominent.
