Rainbow City, Miami, Florida
After years of being told "Do not touch" in art galleries, you might feel a little reticent about the hands-on approach at the Rainbow City installation that coincides with Art Basel Miami Beach
Arty think tank FriendsWithYou has created a psychedelic environment that features 40 brightly colored, toylike inflatable sculptures ranging in size from 10 to 40 feet tall--all of it intended to make you feel like a kid again. Running around, jumping on the exhibits, and generally regressing to childish ways is actively encouraged.
We've seen this kind of behavior in Miami before, but it had nothing to do with art.
