Big Bambu'

Yesterday we took the kids into the city (NYC) for a day of high and low cultcha at the MET and dinner in Chinatown...
The artworlds twin brothers, Mike and Doug Starn, were asked to create a site-specific installation on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art... the monumental bamboo structure is an ongoing work in progress constructed by a team of artists and rock climbers.  This network of 5,000 interlocking bamboo poles tied together with nylon rope is like a forest at the base and is walkable above on elevated pathways if you book the walking tour.  We came too late in the day for the tour yesterday, they were sold out by noon, but it was still very cool...

It was a spectacular fall day and the people watching was one of the best parts!
Tomorrow, more about our day...
