CLEVELAND — The highly anticipated opening of the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit is a week away from opening in Cleveland and organizers are looking for help.

There are 25 part-time shift lead jobs posted on Indeed.com. The pay starts at $18 an hour for supervising daily operations at the exhibit.

It was originally running until December but due to the overwhelming response and support from the arts in the Cleveland community, the producer says it’s extended until Feb. 6.

"I've never had a project like this that's arrived and has been as big a hit and as part of it and as has really enmeshed in the zeitgeist the way this has. And here in Cleveland, we've sold over a hundred thousand tickets. So we're off to a great start here as well,” said Cory Ross, producer for the exhibit.

The venue is in Cleveland’s Lighthouse Airspace located at East 28th Street, which is a former industrial building.

“We work with the architecture and we project on every surface, on the floors, on the walls, on the columns, on the brickwork. And so it's a unique installation in every city that we go to because it works with the architecture so nicely and and then it's choreographed to music.

Organizers are hoping to make a permanent home for more immersive exhibitions in Cleveland. Immersive Van Gogh opens Sept. 22.
