City Deploys Vaccine Bus to ‘Immersive Van Gogh’ Exhibit
Today, the city is teaming up with the much anticipated exhibit, “Immersive Van Gogh,” in the name of vaccination.
The show that is bringing the famous Dutch artist’s masterpieces to life via 500,000 cubic-feet projections at Pier 36, is hosting an on-site Mobile Vaccine Bus this weekend. It’s part of the City’s latest initiative, Youth Vaccination Week; the bus will provide Pfizer shots to New Yorkers, ages 12 and up.
Added perk: free tickets to the Van Gogh exhibit will be handed out to the first 100 people who receive on-site vaccinations. Immersive Van Gogh will also offer all visitors who receive the vaccine on-site the option to purchase preview tickets, from June 4 through June 9, at 50% off the normal price (valid for 1 ticket per person).
“We are thrilled to host one of the City’s Mobile Vaccine Buses on site at Pier 36 and offer an incentive for both local community members and tourists alike to get their first dose,” said Maria Shclover, Co-Producer of Immersive Van Gogh. “If we can help facilitate NYC’s youth to receive vaccinations, and introduce them to the art of Vincent van Gogh, that’s a win-win.”
The bus will be parked at the Pier 36 parking lot (299 South Street) today through the weekend, 9am-5pm. More information can be found here.
