Every year, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has a different exhibit on the roof of the building.  In previous years, Jeff Koons’ balloon dog was there as was a really cool installation by Roxy Paine.  This year, the floor of the roof is a commission by Imran Qureshi.  In theory, it is really cool.  The roof of the met is quite large and the mural extends across most of it.  In actuality, it looks like you’re stepping into a blood bath.  I found myself wanting to get a mop and bucket and rinse off this gigantic stain.

The good thing is that it’s always a treat to head up to the roof of the Met because you get to see really amazing views of Manhattan and on a gorgeous day, it’s even better.  But like the Punk exhibit, which is showing a few floors below, you should definitely not move heaven and earth to see either.

This commission runs through November 3, 2013 and can be seen permitting on the weather.

Cloud City by Tomas Saraceno on the roof of the Met in NYC. Now through November 4, 2012

New York!  Don’t miss out on one of the highlights of the summer, visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art and heading up to the roof.  Not only do you get to see a gorgeous view of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline, but through November 4, 2012, you can see Tomas Saraceno’s “Cloud City.”  You can obtain free tickets to climb inside the structure (don’t worry, there’s a staircase inside), but those go pretty quickly, so you might want to head there first.  If you don’t go inside, don’t worry – you can still see a view such as that pictured above.

Cloud City will be on view through November 4, 2012 on the Roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Located at 1000 Fifth Avenue (at 82nd Street). New York, NY 10028 Phone (212)535-7710 for Hours and More Information.
