Vincent van Gogh posts this description of the bedroom in Arles, France, that he would like to rent out on Airbnb:
"The idea is to give as many people as possible a chance to check in and grab a night during the run of the Van Gogh exhibition," spokeswoman Amanda Hicks said in an email.
"We hope it's a way to bring fresh eyes and fresh perspective to the painting. ... And it's an innovative way to bring the painting to life for visitors to Chicago and to the Art Institute."
The room exists inside a real apartment in the city's River North neighborhood. Ravenswood Studio's artists and designers created the room over four weeks. In addition to the bedroom, it has creature comforts Van Gogh didn't have: a kitchen, bathroom and a living room with a TV.
Van Gogh painted the room in Arles, by the way, in 1888 and 1889. The show brings together three paintings of the room to give folks a feel for the space that was his refuge.
How do you rent the room?
By the way, the $10 rental comes with tickets to the art exhibit.
If you don't get to stay, you can still see a to-scale replica at the museum, surrounded by screens that display the words from Van Gogh's letters, his sketchbooks and more.
