The New Museum's big attraction, the Carsten Höller exhibit, just got more expensive. The installation, and in particular the giant slide, has been drawing large crowds, and the museum says they raised the price in order to pay for extra staff (and, you know, because they can). The new price is $16, up from $12... but the experience of going down a giant slide and then soaking naked in a public sensory deprivation tank is truly priceless.

Reportedly the new price may not be permanent, and as ArtsBeat points out, you can always get in for free on Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. The exhibit ends on January 15th, so you've got a little more than a month to check it out.
