On December 7, 2014, we went to see the Klimt and Vienna, a century of gold and colors exhibit at the carrières de lumière in Les Baux. This is an art exhibit unlike any we had ever seen: the works are projected onto the walls and floors of the old Bauxite mines. The displays are moving as paintings mesh into others and assemble in front of viewers' eyes. The immersion effect is total, and the wonderful soundtrack (Mahler, Strauss, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff...) was perfect. There simply is no way to convey the experience with a few still photographs, especially since all we had with us were our iPhones. The light, when there was any, was extremely challenging, and so the photos in this gallery are of correspondingly mediocre quality. They are, however, all we have to document this wonderful and highly recommended experience. Both Vicki and I contributed photos to this page.

This looks extraordinary--and mind-boggling. Thanks for sharing these with us.

We only wish that we could see the exhibit in person. Then, we could have the full extraordinary experience--and we might get to see our dear friends Vicki and Daniel, too!
