Art Institute of Chicago Recreates van Gogh’s Bedroom and Puts it on Airbnb


It’s one of the most familiar bedrooms in the world of art, if not the most well known bedroom full stop. “Bedroom in Arles” was painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1888. And for the first time in North America, all three version of this famous painting will be displayed in the same exhibition Chicago.

To celebrate the opening of this exhibition, the Art Institute of Chicago has recreated the room and put it up for rent on Airbnb for just 10USD.

According to the Airbnb advertisement, “This room will make you feel like you’re living in a painting. It’s decorated in a Post-Impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by. Its furniture, bright colors, and artwork will give you the experience of a lifetime.”
