Art fans, here's a vacation idea. The Art Institute of Chicago created a real-world replica of Van Gogh's famous "The Bedroom." Not only does this exist, but you can rent it out on Airbnb—for $10.
The room, which is ten blocks from the museum, was created to promote the upcoming exhibition of Van Gogh's three representations of the bedroom in his house at Arles. It’s the first time the three paintings have been brought together in North America, spokeswoman Amanda Hicks said.
The Airbnb is listed as if Van Gogh wrote it, and he's charging $10 "for no other reason than that I need to buy paint."
Van Gogh's Bedrooms are on display at AIC from February 14 through May 10.
