Van Gogh exhibit opening in Minneapolis delayed, set to open Friday

For the second time this month, the opening of the highly anticipated Immersive Van Gogh exhibition in Minneapolis has been delayed.

The exhibit was set to open Thursday in a northeast Minneapolis warehouse but show organizers spent the day trying to get a permit from the city.

"We are using it in a very different way, which means we need a different classification and consequently our occupancy permit just needs a little bit more time," Nick Harkin, an exhibit spokesman, said.

In a statement, the city of Minneapolis said in part:

"The initial plans didn’t meet building code. City staff asked their architect to submit an alternative plan that included safety features to keep people safe. The architect has submitted a plan that the City has signed off on."

The show is set to open Friday morning at 10. Tickets start at $50.
