Looking for something fun to amuse you and your little ones in the city this weekend? Head over to the Brooklyn Bridge Park to see Danish artist Jeppe Hein's Please Touch the Art, an exhibition by the Public Art Fund curated by Nicholas Baume, on display from May 17, 2015 - April 17, 2016. This selection of 18 pieces, from three larger bodies of work, extends throughout the length of the park and the Public Art Fund has created a fun scavenger hunt to engage visitors, available on their website. Appearing Rooms consists of fountains that constantly change, creating new rooms for visitors to explore. Mirror Labyrinth NY reflects the Manhattan skyline both literally and symbolically, with mirror-polished vertical steel planks. Finally, the bright red Modified Social Benches reimagine the simple park bench into a new and playful form. Visit Hein's website to learn more about his work. We love this exhibit for its cool, interactive design and creative experimentation with form, function, and scale.
