THE LUME Indianapolis, boasting 150 floor-to-ceiling high-definition projectors, remains the largest contiguous exhibition space in Newfields’ 139-year history. The one-of-a-kind Monet & Friends Alive experience, created by Australian-based  Grande Experiences, invites guests back to a time where the face of European art was set to change forever, examining the world of Impressionism across three main movements: Metropolitan, A Day in the Life and En Plein Air. The masterpieces of the Impressionists come to life with a rich, dynamic display of light, color, and sound. Breathtaking paintings will be projected on an enormous scale with vivid detail to bring back, larger than life, the bold brushstrokes of Monet, Pissarro,  Renoir, Cézanne and more. Guests will indulge their senses and enjoy the sights of 19th century Paris through the eyes of  the painters who immortalized them. Set to music by Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Ravel and Offenbach, Monet & Friends Alive is  an immersive experience that stimulates all the senses.
