Rainbow City: AOL & FriendsWithYou’s Urban Playground [Pics]
A large-scale interactive installation made of inflatable sculptures will come to New York City this June.
In a novel collaboration, AOL and whimsical art collective FriendsWithYou are coming together to create an “urban playground” in New York City. From the press release:
In June 2011, to celebrate the opening of Section 2 of the High Line, AOL is presenting Rainbow City, a collection of colorful, inflatable sculptures by FriendsWithYou, a world-renowned Miami-based arts collaboration. Situated on 30th Street and 10th Avenue between June and July, Rainbow City will create an urban playground that invites New Yorkers and visitors to walk in and around the sculptures. Rainbow City will mark the first large-scale interactive installation by FriendsWithYou in New York City.
