In this endless season of wintry mix and polar vortices, it's nice to know that someone out there is planning for warmer months. Today, the Metropolitan Museum announced that Dan Graham has been selected to create the art for its venerable rooftop garden this summer, one of our favorite places to sip a martini and take in the view of sprawling Central Park. The 71-year-old New Yorker will design a steel-and-glass pavilion specifically for the site in collaboration with Swiss landscape architect Günther Vogt, and you can check it out starting April 29.
In addition to these types of architectural pieces, the American Conceptual artist is known for his performance art, installations, video, sculpture, drawings, paintings and photography. He's also written about rock music and collaborated with Sonic Youth and other local bands. We can't wait to see what he pulls out of his hat for the Met's roof garden…and for the sunnier climes that will accompany his work.
