"Beyond Van Gogh: An Immersive Experience" is headed to the Circuit of the Americas this June.

The man who painted "The Starry Night" is on his way to Austin — in spirit, of course. This June, the Circuit of the Americas will host "Beyond Van Gogh: An Immersive Experience" where folks can view Vincent van Gogh's famous works as part of a three-dimensional world.

The exhibit opens June 18 and will run through Aug. 8. "Beyond Van Gogh" will feature more than 300 works of van Gogh's art displayed using projection technology, as designed by French-Canadian creative director Mathieu St-Arnaud and his team at the Normal Studio in Montreal.

By using van Gogh's dreams and words in tandem with his art, "Beyond Van Gogh" sheds new light on familiar pieces, like "The Starry Night," "Sunflowers" and "Café Terrace at Night." Instead of looking at a picture in a frame, guests will be looking at walls and floors coated in moving light and color.  

As viewers peruse the Circuit of the Americas' Starry Night Pavilion, they'll be accompanied by a symphonic score. 

You can buy tickets online at vangoghaustin.com. Cost ranges from $28.99 for children up to $93.99 for VIP entry. Those who buy their ticket by April 11 can use the code BEYOND for 10% off. Tickets correspond with arrival times to reduce capacity. The exhibit takes roughly one hour to complete.

After its time in Austin, the exhibit will continue on to more cities across North America.
