hanging out in Van Gogh's Cafe
Virtual Starry Night, a museum run by the Dutch Masters Group of Second Life, is a beautiful juxtapose of modern Second Life Architecture and the classic pre-impressionistic paintings of Van Gogh.
In addition to being informative- trivia is abound at nearly every corner you turn- it is also an interactive exhibit. Time was taken to piece together Van Gogh's bedroom, street cafe, and boat studies into 3-dimensions so you can crawl through the mind of the painter. Also a great place to visit if you're looking for an interesting addition of furniture to your Second Life bedroom :]

Be sure to check out the Dutch Masters Group frequently- they have plenty of interactive exhibits of the Master's paintings in the works, and may eventually be offering space for the residents of Second Life to show their work.
