About The Vordun Museum and Gallery
The Vordun Museum and Gallery is an art and history experience in Second Life. Featuring the use of “The Vordun HUD” (a heads-up display users can attach to their avatar), visitors can feel as if they are visiting a physical museum. The HUD assists by creating a Land-Scope experience; it can control basic tasks to animate your avatar, track your camera, teleport you, etc. in order to interact with exhibits.
The “Frost: Visions of Winter” exhibit will close March 17, 2019. Additional exhibits now on display include “European Masters: 300 Years of Painting”, “Pictures of the Floating World”, “Sincerely Yours” and “Proverbs of the Low Countries.”
The Vordun is owned by Second Life artist and fashion designer, Jake Vordun. For a taste of his art, check out Jake’s Flickr page.
