CALGARY, AB–/COMMUNITYWIRE/–Building on the unprecedented global success of Beyond Van Gogh, Producer Paquin Entertainment Group and Stampede Entertainment Inc. will launch the opening of Beyond Monet, an immersive experience showcasing 400 of Claude Monet’s most iconic works of impressionism, including the Water Lilies series, Impression: Sunrise and Poppies.
“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 the U.S.,” says Justin Paquin, co-producer and director of live, Paquin Entertainment Group. “You truly feel like you are a part of the bright and colorful world of Claude Monet rather than a spectator.”
The exhibition is brought to life by Mathieu St-Arnaud and Félix Fradet-Faguy, and their creative team at Normal Studio. Beyond Monet is full of infinite potential for wonder and sheds new light on what the world thought they knew about Monet. The exhibition is set to open at the BMO Centre at Stampede Park.

Beyond Monet gives guests a glimpse into the emotions and perspectives of the leading figure of Impressionism, Claude Monet. After entering the Garden Gallery, the Prism then 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, an oval-shaped space, to absorb the artist’s bright and colorful paintings the way it was intended. Monet’s stunning imagery encompasses every surface of the room, from floor to ceiling, 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 score.
“Combining technology with pieces that were crafted to perfection, Beyond Monet 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 was just not possible in previous years.”
Producers of Beyond Monet have successfully toured immersive experiences around the globe including Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience which has sold over two million tickets, becoming one of the most popular exhibitions traveling the world.
