The Roof Garden Commission: Lauren Halsey

Happy Memorial Day ! I hope you are all enjoying the start of summer. This is the most fabulous exhibit on the roof garden at The Met which is on view until October 22, 2023 and highly recommended! If you are at the museum on a beautiful day, there is nothing more enjoyable that visiting the exhibit on the roof. This year's exhibit is very cool, and the views are to die for. 

Here is some information on the exhibit from The Met: 

American artist Lauren Halsey (b. 1987, Los Angeles) has been commissioned to create a site-specific installation for The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Halsey will create a full-scale architectural structure imbued with the collective energy and imagination of the South Central Los Angeles Community where she was born and continues to work. Titled the eastside of south central los angeles hieroglyph prototype architecture (I), the installation is designed to be inhabited by The Met’s visitors, who will be able to explore its connections to sources as varied as ancient Egyptian symbolism, 1960s utopian architecture, and contemporary visual expressions like tagging that reflect the ways in which people aspire to make public places their own.

It does not get better than this !
