A glowing, larger-than-life sculpture was just installed in the Oakland Museum of California, and it's begging you to take a selfie with it. The brainchild of LA-based art group FriendsWithYou, "Nature’s Gift: Human, Friends & the Unknown” is meant to spread joy through rainbow colors, soothing tunes and even silky hammocks, lounge areas and an artificial lawn where friends can chill for a while.
As part of Friday Nights at OMCA, the museum will even install a separate bar inside the "Nature's Gift" gallery room so that people can hang out with the glowing statue. A small gift store inside the room also offers glow-in-the-dark hula hoops, balls and light sticks to play with.
Check out the new exhibit yourself this weekend. It opens to the public on Saturday, October 7.
Oakland Museum of California, 1000 Oak St, Oakland (510-318-8400, museumca.org). Opens Oct 7; Through Jan 21.
