Airbnb Has Vincent Van Gogh’s “Bedroom” Available For Rent [PHOTOS]

Stay in Vincent Van Gogh's "Bedroom" for $10 a night

The Art Institute of Chicago is providing art enthusiasts with a unique (and ridiculously affordable) opportunity to stay in an Airbnb listing that they’ve recreated to look like Vincent Van Gogh’s iconic bedroom. The initiative is in celebration of the institute’s new exhibition, Van Gogh’s Bedrooms, which opens this coming weekend.

According to the listing on Airbnb, “The room will make you feel like you’re living in a painting.” And while Bedrooms may be among Van Gogh’s most valuable oil paintings, the Chicago bedroom recreated in their image is incredibly inexpensive to stay in. The price for a one-night stay in Van Gogh’s bedroom will only cost you $10 “for no other reason than that I [Vincent] need to buy paint.”

Van Gogh’s Bedrooms features a total of 36 works by the Dutch master, including the three paintings of the artist’s own bedroom in the south of France. Each distinct in their own way, the Bedroom paintings were all done between 1888 and 1889, just after the artist moved into his famous “Yellow House.” The exhibit marks the first time that all three paintings will be displayed together in North America.

The Art Institute of Chicago‘s Van Gogh exhibition will run from February 14, 2016–May 10, 2016. If you plan on seeing it, or just want a cool place to stay when visiting The Windy City, check out the Airbnb listing to book Van Gogh’s bedroom.
