The Stolen Art Gallery – a VR experience that places you in a gallery of major works of art that have been stolen or are missing

“This week, I used the headset to visit The Stolen Art Gallery, a VR exhibit of famous works of art that were either stolen or have gone missing. Created by Compass UOL, the app placed me in the center of a dark circular gallery surrounded by five works of art by Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Cézanne, Manet, and Van Gogh. Using a virtual smartwatch on my wrist, I was able to summon the visage of each artist to tell me the story of their painting and what happened to it.”
