Kids of all ages are going to be blown away these School Holidays following the grand opening of Australia’s first immersive Trick Art Museum, ArtVo.
Located permanently in Harbour Town, Docklands, ArtVo Melbourne is a new immersive 3D art museum (otherwise known as ‘Trick Art’) and is the first of its kind in Australia. As opposed to normal art galleries or museums, visitors are encouraged to touch and interact with the artworks, photographing each other as they become part of the art.
ArtVo’s Managing Director Leonard Ng insists visitors will have an experience like never before.
“As soon as you walk through the doors of ArtVo, you’re overwhelmed by the breath-taking quality of the artworks,” Mr Ng said.
“You could quite literally be anywhere on earth, or even deep beneath the ocean.”
“Words just can’t do it justice as it really does have to be seen to be believed and, best of all, it’s about far more than just looking at the art, visitors are actually encouraged to make themselves a part of all the different scenes.”
“Importantly, there are educational elements everywhere too, from the historical sights of ancient Egypt, to some internationally acclaimed tourist destinations of Italy, visitors find themselves thinking about both art and history in a completely different way.”
“For families looking for something new to do these School Holidays, they really don’t have to look much further than ArtVo and the Harbour Town precinct – there really is something for everyone.”
“To get a taste for what you can expect, head to www.artvo.com.au and check it out for yourself,” Mr Ng added.
ArtVo’s artworks are large scale and painted directly on to walls and floors, with some additional sculptural elements added to allow visitors to immerse themselves into different scenes and locations, as well as some world famous paintings.
Fourteen artists with decades of experience in trick-art completed in excess of 100 hand painted artworks in just 60 days.
