'Rain Room' Visitors Bathing In Purple Rain Today In Honor Of Prince
Thanks to a little Twitter finagling, visitors to LACMA's "Rain Room" will be bathing in purple rain, at least for today.
Like anyone with even a smidgeon of a soul, Random International, the art collective behind the wildly popular installation, was mourning Prince's death yesterday. But unlike you and me, they turned their collective grief into beautiful action, tweeting at LACMA to please light "Rain Room" purple in honor of Prince. And luckily, the museum was easily convinced. Here are the tweets:
Needless to say, the installation's temporary purple rain is haunting—and perfect. "Rain Room" will close briefly at the end of the weekend before reopening in late May. In the meantime, we'll see you underneath the purple rain.
