Van Gogh's famous bedroom painting

Availability is tight for a $10 Airbnb rental in Chicago designed to look like a Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece.

Openings for the space the Art Institute of Chicago modeled after Van Gogh’s famous painting of his bedroom have sold out quickly. The promotion for the museum’s “Van Gogh’s Bedrooms” exhibition was announced earlier this month, and future dates will be announced in waves on the Art Institute’s social media channels.

Curator Gloria Groom says Van Gogh’s bedroom in the south of France represented something he was looking for all of his life, a place of his own.

The blue walls, yellow chairs and painted floor in Chicago are all familiar, but this version comes with a double bed, Wi-Fi and an indoor bathroom.

The exhibition runs through May 10.
