Fans of the immersive Van Gogh exhibit that came to Columbus last year have another new 360-degree video experience to look forward to soon.

Beautifica, billed as a “360 journey through worlds real and imagined,” is coming to Columbus. 

The show, which was created by the renowned video and musical artist James Hood, is coming to the COSI Planetarium next on June 2. You can book tickets here. Hood also created the lauded immersive 360 video experience Mesmerica.


The COSI Planetarium, which is the largest in the state of Ohio, features a Digistar-7 projection system and a massive, 60-foot dome.

Visitors can expect 360 fulldome video projection, 7.1 Surround Sound and 3D visuals created by many of the world’s best animators as everything from “mindblowing particle fields to unashamedly euphoric fantastic environments almost impossible to describe” play across the 360-degree screen.
