Don’t miss Tomás Sarceno on the Roof: Cloud City at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, now through November 4, 2012 (weather permitting).

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) has created Cloud City, a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Met’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Merging art, architecture, and science, Saraceno’s work explores the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment.

Gothamist says Cloud City looks “magnificent.” Time Out New York calls it a “magical space station.”

Visitors may enter and walk through Cloud City or view the structure from the main level of the Met’s Roof Garden, set against the dramatic backdrop of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline. For Cloud City access guidelines and information about obtaining timed-entry tickets, go to the Met’s website. Tickets are free with Museum admission.

Enjoy a drink from the Roof Garden’s “ARTini” bar and watch the sunset when the Met stays open until 9:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The exhibition is made possible by Bloomberg.

Additional support is provided by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky, The Daniel and Estrellita Brodsky Foundation,
William S. Lieberman Fund, and Eugenio Lopez.
