The Rain Room at the MOMA, the most talked-about NYC art exhibit of the summer, is the perfect example of how something completely mundane can feel so special when placed into a different context. The rain itself, and the visitors who stay dry while standing under it, are all on display and literally in the spotlight in the otherwise completely dark room. The creators explain how visitors “control” the rain to stay dry in the video below. It’s definitely worth a look – until July 28!
Other special exhibits worth checking out in NYC this summer:
- PUNK: Chaos to Couture at the Met (until August 14)
- Photography and the American Civil War at the Met (until September 2)
