Washington DC Knows About the Light At the End of the Tunnel
For all of you who headed out in the middle of winter for the Washington DC party of the year, also known as the presidential election, but didn't have enough time or personal space to enjoy the rest of the sites of the city, spring may just be the perfect time to plot a return.
Along with the millions of blooming cherry blossoms on the Mall, the National Gallery of Art will have the "Multiverse," a light show with 41,000 LEDs rocking out to rhythmic patterns in a 200-foot-long tunnel between the museum's wings.
According to PSFK, the massive installation is the artwork of American Leo Villareal, and the "custom designed software also has an element of chance built into it, so it’s unlikely that anyone will see the same routine twice." This did not bode well for the epileptics in the crowd, so read any warning signs before entering into the tunnel.
It's even recession-friendly! Admission to the National Gallery of Art is always free, and they're open daily throughout the week, so now you've no excuse to skip out on tripping out to 41,000 pulsating lights.
