Physical art on a white wall just doesn’t cut it anymore when it comes to art museums…people want to have an IMMERSIVE experience and interact with new forms of art, which is why we’ve seen seeing so many new art shows of this kind. In recent months, you’ve had the options of experiencing Van Gogh, Banksy and event the television show “Friends”.
Now Seattle is getting a new museum solely devoted to immersive art…it’s the WNDR Museum and it’s the latest offshoot from its home base in Chicago. Tickets go on sale on February 23rd and the museum will open its doors in the SoDo neighborhood on March 22, 2023.
Here’s all the skinny:
SEATTLE, WA (February 22, 2023) — WNDR Museum, an unparalleled immersive art and technology experience, today announced it will open its newest location in Seattle Wednesday, March 22. The Seattle museum will be WNDR’s third-ever location, part of a nationwide expansion stemming from its flagship in Chicago.
