“I guess they don’t have the Psycho Barn,” she said to her husband confused. True. The Psycho Barn was LAST year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s summer rooftop installation. An interesting and thought provoking structure nestled in the corner of the Met Rooftop. If you aren’t a frequent visitor of the Met, you might not have realized the rooftop exhibit changes each year. Here’s a look at what you’ll find on the rooftop this summer.
Every year this exhibit changes, drawing thousands of new visitors to see what artists have come up with to fill the space. This year’s exhibit The Theater of Disappearance by Adrian Villar Rojas really fills the space. The artist was inspired by over 1000 artifacts from the museums collection. He created replications of them to design this unique exhibit. This large masterpiece is so delicate and takes up so much space, the Met Young Member Party could not accommodate the large crowd this summer.
Here are a few other photos of what you will find if you take the elevators to the top of Met this summer.
There is a bar on the rooftop serving sandwiches, snacks, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages, making it a nice place to stop and relax for a few moments while touring NYC.
Admission to the rooftop is included in general admission, weather permitting. Entrance to the museum is a suggested donation of $20, but visitors can pay what they wish.
