There is currently an exhibition called Big Bambú on the Met Roof, which is a jungle-like arrangement of bamboo poles. The exhibit will continue to grow until October – although I should point out that it’s “growing” because the artists are continually adding to it. When I referred to the exhibit as “growing” on Friday night, someone gently pointed out to me that the bamboo used in the exhibit was no longer alive. The museum leads tours along the paths, which take visitors twenty to forty feet above the roof of the museum. Just the thought of being so high in the air gives me shivers, but it’s definitely something that I want to do. I plan on coming back sometime during the summer (and the day) to take one of those tours.

awesome view, right?
