Make the most of your city

First look at MoMA's Rain Room, part of Expo 1 (slide show)

In Rain Room, a new installation at MoMA, it's always pouring—unless you're trying to get wet. Then magically, right where you're standing, the showers stop.

Part of PS1 MoMA's new, environmentally focused show "Expo 1,"  Rain Room by rAndom International, which opened at MoMA on Friday, May 10, is bound to make a splash with kids. The immersive, interactive installation allows viewers to walk right into the rain—after a wait; be prepared to stand in line—which ends up stopping right over your head, even as you walk through it. The effect: You get to enjoy everything you love about rain without actually getting wet. Click through our slide show, above, for a peek at the inventively poetic work.


Rain Room will be on view at the Museum of Modern Art through July 28.
