Cloud City at the Met

The weather has been wonderful here the past few nights, prompting us to go take in the evening skyline and see the new rooftop exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This year, the exhibit is Tomás Saraceno’s “Cloud City,” made of up stacking and interlocking geometric shapes. As always, the people-watching was half the fun–especially watching the people watch themselves in the mirrored surfaces. (I have to admit, we snapped a few self-portraits from time to time, too.) And you can climb up into the piece with a ticket for a timed-entry. The photos of the installation process are pretty wild.

As always, the roof of the Met is a must for anyone visiting the city during the summer!
