FunJob Open Rainbow City at the High Line
FunJob and AOL Artists are excited to announce the opening of the forty piece environmental installation "Rainbow City" in New York City, in celebration of Section 2 of the High Line. Originally commissioned by Luminato Festival of the Arts in Toronto and showcased in association with AOL and PAPER Magazine during Art Basel Miami 2010, FunJob presents a vibrant collection of mutable, air-filled sculptures.
"Rainbow City" is FunJob's first large-scale installation in New York. This happy city is made up of intensely colored balloon pieces and encourages visitors to be active and explore the giant 16,000 square foot playground. Built for adults and children alike, the installation allows for interaction with each art object, making the experience unforgettable. Holi, a festival in India during which people shower each other with color pigment and paint to celebrate the coming of spring, inspired "Rainbow City".
The installation is located at the lot on 30th street in the Chelsea art district. "Rainbow City" will feature an exclusive pop-up shop where limited-edition products designed for AOL will be available.
"Rainbow City" runs until July 5th at the High Line in New York City. For more information, including hours of operation, visit FriendsWithYou's site.
