Dreams of Dalí: A Virtual Reality Tour Inside One of Salvador Dalí's Famous Paintings

YouTube Link

If you're a modern art lover and haven't visited the Salvador Dalí museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, I recommend the experience. Not only is the building an impressive, unique example of modern architecture, but it houses the artist's most famous works, superior to the display at the Dalí museum in Figueres, Spain.

For the St. Petersburg museum's latest draw, they've teamed with Disney to present “Disney & Dalí: Architects of the Imagination.“ Visitors will be presented with "Dreams of Dalí," an immersive virtual reality tour inside his famous painting Archeological Reminiscence of Millet’s Angelus, by way of an Oculus Rift headset. As a bonus to people like me who love the music of the Pixies, the clip above is set to an appealing classical imagining of "Where is My Mind," performed by Maxence Cyrin from the album Novö Piano.

The exhibit, said by the Smithsonian to explore Dalí's "unlikely friendship and creative partnership with Walt Disney," includes sketches, paintings and correspondence between the two masters. The show runs until June 12, 2016.
