The ArtScience Museum's New VR Gallery Offers Unique And Trippy Virtual Reality Experiences

The ArtScience Museum is Red Dot Diva's top favourite museum on the island. She visits the museum about 5 times in a year. Maybe even more.

The museum's specially selected themes and exhibits are what draws her in, due to of her love for science-fiction, tech and pop-culture art as well as engineering oddities. Being easily accessible at its Marina Bay location just a 20-minute bus ride from where she lives is also a big thumbs up.

Starting from 10 July 2021, the ArtScience Museum has launched a brand new VR Gallery. The permanent room at Level 4 will offer visitors a series of unique immersive virtual reality experiences created by the world's renowned contemporary artists.

Red Dot Diva was fortunate to attend a preview of the new VR Gallery, which features futuristic egg-shaped chairs that allow you to swivel 360 degrees. Placed on each seat were state-of-the-art VR headset and controllers, which will help you navigate your virtual surroundings.

Sir Peter Blake: The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection Gallery - A Visual Experience About Legacy and Pop Art

There are few things better than art and booze. Especially when they are appreciated together.

Red Dot Diva stumbled upon a lovely art exhibition hosted by luxury single malt whiskey brand The Macallan with just a few days till the end of its run. The exhibition entitled SIR PETER BLAKE: ANECDOTE OF AGES COLLECTION GALLERY is held at their store located within the Raffles Hotel. The last day of the event will be 9 July (Friday), and admission is complimentary!

For over 30 decades, reknown pop culture artist Sir Peter Blake, has collaborated with The Macallan regarding the designs of their whisky bottles. Hardcore Beatles fans will remember Sir Peter Blake as the one behind the sleeve design of their album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. He also designed the cover for the Live Aid concert poster as well as the Band Aid single “Do They Know It's Christmas?”.

For the ANECDOTE OF AGES COLLECTION, this will be the third time that the pioneering artist and distillery have worked together. The sought-after collection consists of 13 bottles of rare 1967 whisky. The year 1967 has special significance as well. It was the year that Sir Peter Blake rocketed into the consciousness of pop-culture history with his iconic cover of the Beatles' album.
