Building on the unprecedented global success of Beyond Van Gogh, which attracted more than 100,000 ticket holders in Honolulu last year, producer Paquin Entertainment Group will open Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience on Wednesday, June 15 at Hawaii Convention Center. The exhibition showcases more than 400 of Claude Monet’s most iconic works of impressionism—including the Water Lilies series, Impression: Sunrise, and Poppies.

Brought to life by Mathieu St-Arnaud, Félix Fradet-Faguy and the creative team at Normal
Studio, Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience is full of infinite potential for wonder and
sheds new light on what the world thought it knew about Monet.


This is the talented team that created Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, which globally has sold more than 2.5 million tickets. With its stunning set pieces and inspiring musical score, Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience promises to provide an even more satisfying art experience.

“Combining technology with pieces that were crafted to perfection, Beyond Monet: The
Immersive Experience is redefining what art means to people,” says Gilles Paquin, producer
and CEO, Paquin Entertainment Group. “It has elevated artwork to the next level, allowing us to form new relationships with notable masterpieces that were just not possible in previous years.”

Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience gives guests a glimpse into the emotions and
perspectives of the leading figure of Impressionism: Claude Monet. After entering the Garden
Gallery, the Prism transports visitors into the biggest feature area of the exhibit. Taking
inspiration from Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, the designated home of Monet’s masterpieces,
guests can freely roam the Infinity Room to absorb the artist’s bright and colorful paintings the
way they were intended.

Monet’s stunning imagery encompasses the room’s surfaces, transporting guests inside the paintings themselves. It is a haven for awakening the senses as the ebb and flow of the artwork is accompanied by the rhythm of an original musical score. “Beyond Monet builds on the global success of Beyond Van Gogh, and spans 50,000 square feet with over one million cubic feet of space, making it one of the largest immersive experiences in North America,” says Justin Paquin, producer, Paquin Entertainment Group.
