ART: Spend Your Next ‘Rain’ Day at MoMA
We’ve all heard the saying, “Rain, rain go away,” but how often does that really work? Well, here’s your chance to play Mother Nature for a day at the Museum of Modern Art. Rain Room premiered last year at England’s Barbican Centre and was a smashing hit. The installation’s first U.S. showing is just as popular, with New York crowds lining up and waiting for hours in MoMA’s adjacent lot since opening in May.
Get lost in the moment upon entering the darkened 300-square-foot space. The soothing sound of rain may distract your attention from a steady stream of water above. Visitors stay dry exploring the room, though. A system of 3D tracking cameras sense your every move, but I think half the fun is getting a little wet!
NOTE: The Rain Room installation is open during regular Museum hours and runs through July 28. Admittance to the line will end once it reaches capacity, prior to Museum closing.
