Nature's Gift at the Oakland Museum
I went to this exhibit at the Oakland Museum called Nature's Gift. It is a large-scale inflatable sculpture that extends 55 feet long, 34 feet deep, 15 feet tall, and is illuminated by bright, multicolored LED lights and features layers of texture and sound. It is supposed to draw the audience into a magical world where the line between imagination and reality are blurred and visitors ware supposed to escape into the work through a rainbow passageway that figuratively transports them into an alternative world in which you can walk around it or thru it:
Nature's Gift was very interesting and reminded me of going to Dead concerts when I was in high school. The Oakland Museum did a wonderful job.
