NY’s Met Museum lets visitors climb to cloud 9
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art is big on bubbles.
They inspired Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno (toh-MAHZ' sah-rah-SAY'-noh) to create a work that rises from the roof of the museum.
Titled "Cloud City," the 16 stainless steel-framed bubbles are reachable via transparent staircases. Visitors get spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Central Park.
The 38-year-old artist says his work reflects the city. So when the sky is blue, you see blue. And when it's cloudy, visitors feel like they're in a cloud.
Sara Theeboom (TEE'-boom), a visitor from Sydney, Australia, called it "very cool," but she wouldn't recommend having a drink before you go up.
The artist says he wanted to challenge future architects to envision cities that float above Earth.
