Don’t forget your bathing suit when you visit Jeppe Hein’s kid-friendly art exhibition “Please Touch the Art” at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Hein’s iconic water sculpture, Appearing Rooms is currently installed on the Bridge View Lawn. Vertical jets of water will gradually appear forming seven-foot-tall “walls”, which moments later will disappear, enabling visitors to move to different “rooms”, all without touching a drop of water. Systematically, these “walls” appear and disappear through a timed cycle, enticing visitors to step onto the gridded platform and move from space to space within the sculpture. The cycle of changing walls may also be observed from outside the piece as a dynamic and perceptually engaging work of art. The second major component of the exhibition is a newly conceived, large-scale Mirror Labyrinth to be installed at the Pier 3 Greenway Terrace. The third body of work, Modified Social Benches, will be on view throughout the park,surprising visitors with each chance encounter.
The exhibit is open daily from 6:00 AM – 1:00 AM and is free for visitors.
