Tomas Saraceno

If you haven’t already made the pleasant trip up the pass to Green Mountain Falls to see the amazing Tomas Saraceno sculpture, “Cloud City”, at the Green Box Arts Festival, this week is your last chance to do so before it comes down. We had the pleasure to wear the instutional slip-on booties, walk through its Bucky ball bubble cluster, and shuffle across its vertiginous plexi floors last week. You can’t help but think that the future and nature can coexist!

You don’t need an appointment, but you do have to fill out a release and may have to wait in line if it’s busy. Even better, you could sign up to volunteer and be with it all day long.

A complete list of Green Box Arts events can be found HERE.
