Art lovers have a chance to spend one starry night in a replica of Vincent Van Gogh’s bedroom for only $10.
The Art Institute of Chicago decorated a one-bedroom apartment to look like Van Gogh’s painting of his bedroom in the south of France. The room in Chicago’s River North neighborhood is listed on Airbnb as if the artist himself were renting it for cash to buy paint.
Renters also will get tickets to the Art Institute’s “Van Gogh’s Bedrooms” exhibition, which opens Sunday and runs through May 10.
Museum spokeswoman Amanda Hicks says February dates for the apartment filled within minutes of the promotion being announced Tuesday night.
More openings will be announced on the Art Institute’s social media channels. Another recreation of the bedroom is in the exhibit.
