Ever wonder what it would be like to live life like a starving artist? Now you can live your dream, as long as you’re willing to pay nightly. 

Thanks to an interactive exhibition launched by the Art Institute of Chicago, art fans can reportedly acquire first-hand experience of what it would be like to dwell within a Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece.

Visitors can enjoy Van Gogh’s painting “The Bedroom” in 3D by booking a full-size replica of the space on Airbnb, aptly decorated to match the details on the canvas with startling accuracy. This one-of-a-kind installation was conceptualized as part of “Van Gogh’s Bedrooms,” the institute’s show featuring three of the titular artist’s works from 1888 to 1889 that focused on his living quarters.
