CLOUD CITY ON THE ROOF
Last week I went to an opening at the Metropolitan Museum to see the latest exhibition to be installed on the roof. It was so amazing! Created by Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno and entitled 'Cloud City' the work is comprised of numerous reflective surfaces bound together into geodesic modules that look metallic bubbles. The result is a mesmerizing array that seems to have no beginning and no end.
Even better? We were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather, so the skyline and Cloud City looked especially luminous. Apparently, if you get a timed ticket, you can walk around in the structure! I would recommend grabbing a ticket for a sunny (they close the roof in rainy weather) Friday or Saturday, when the museum is open until 9pm, and heading up around sunset. You won't be disappointed!
