The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is enormous. It has such an extensive collection of art that it requires two buildings to contain its treasures; the East and West Buildings. You can get from one building to the next through the Rotunda on the main floor, but if you’re looking for a different experience, go down to the concourse level. There you will find an underground walkway about 200 feet in length that is itself a work of art. It is an LED light installation by the American artist Leo Villareal. It is called Multiverse and is so much fun, you may just find yourself crossing back and forth between buildings several times for no reason other than to experience the extraordinary trail of lights and movement. I know I did. Here are a few photos of the installation.
Photographs cannot truly convey the beauty, however, because movement is intrinsic to this piece, so here is some footage I took along the way. Welcome to the Multiverse.
Seriously, how much fun is that?
