You'll actually get to step inside the works of the great Vincent Van Gogh when a new immersive experience dedicated to the artist debuts at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields in 2021. Almost 150 state-of-the-art high-definition projectors will take up 30,000 square feet of space on the museum's fourth floor, transforming famous two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional projections that guests will get to walk through and around. In total, the museum hopes to showcase about 3,000 moving images of the artist's paintings—from lesser known ones to the renowned Sunflowers and The Starry Night—while classic music plays in the background.
Let's just get this out of the way: 2020 was a shit show. Luckily, 2021 is looking up. With the vaccine rollout underway, we're allowing ourselves to dream about music festivals and international travel again. But even if those things don't come to pass in the new year, there are still plenty of exciting new (and safe!) things to do in the United States. From coast to coast, we rounded up the museum openings, scenic train rides, gorgeous new hiking paths and even a pretty-in-pink bar that we're the most excited to try in 2021.
