Looking for a free (and air-conditioned!) activity to do this weekend? Take a trip to the Morgan Library & Museum to check out Berlin artist Monika Grzymala's new site-specific installation, Volumen. The piece, created for the Morgan's 50-foot-high glass-enclosed Gilbert Court, is a sort of homage to the Morgan's role as a repository for original manuscripts and documents in the form of a large web or hanging—it's made out of thousands of pieces of handmade paper strung together with bookbinding yarn. Kids as young as three are sure to be in awe of the installation, which, as you can see from our slide show, above, looks something like a giant cloud of huge snowflakes. The best part: It's completely free to view the installstion (admission to the institution's Gilbert Court is always free; if you want to see any of the museum's other exhibits, you'll have to pay).
