A glowing, colorful, interactive fun house opens at Oakland Museum this weekend

Who needs the Museum of Ice Cream or the Color Factory when you can have a beer next to a giant, inflatable fun house? 

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.
