Virtual Starry Night

Here's a comment from reader Eppie Hock:

Welcome back :-)... I loved Virtual Starry Night!! It is one of my favourite places to go to more than once! From time to time the creators add new objects of art...like the 'walk-in' paintings. Sit inside a painting of Van Gogh! How cool is that !!

I've placed the location and SLurl of Virtual Starry night above. You won't be disappointed if you visit.

Virtual Starry Night is, of course, all about the late Vincent Van Gogh. The build features walk-through exhibits of Van Gogh's paintings and three-dimensional replicas of some of his works. Very nice! Better than very nice!

I've been lucky enough in RL to see Van Gogh's works at the Reiksmuseum in Amsterdam (spelling!), the Musee d'Orsay, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. so I was familiar with many of the paintings-- but I saw them with new eyes.

If you like art, don't fail to visit this beautiful location!

Photos: Van Gogh's Room at Arles and The Night Cafe, paintings and SL 3-D versions, into which I inserted myself.
