Recently, we’ve seen art popping up everywhere. From new murals all around the city, to new art installations, it’s safe to say Columbia is having a major art boom. And honestly, we love it.
Friday afternoon, Columbia’s newest art space, Immersion, held its grand opening – along with Main Course and the Players Club – and officially opened to the public. We headed over to check it out so we could give y’all all of the need-to-know deets in case you couldn’t make it this weekend.
What to know
- The space consists of eight rooms, two bathrooms, a hallway and a lobby that have been transformed from floor to ceiling in different themes.
- Tickets to visit Immersion cost $15.
- Immersion is located on the second floor of Main Course at 1626 Main St.
- The current artists featured at Immersion are Ija Charles, Lacey Hennessey, Christine Lutfy, Laurel Smith, Shelby LeBlanc, Taylor Smith and Austin “Slim” Gee.
- Rooms and spaces will be redone as new artists rotate through Immersion.
- The idea formed over brunch one morning. After seeing a similar concept in Charlotte, the Middleton family knew Columbia needed an interactive art experience.
We see so many photo opportunities in y’all future, Columbia. Check out these teasers for a little inspiration.
