A massive honeycomb-shaped interactive art installation is being built from the ground up 11 miles west of the Springs.
Cloud City will be open June 23-July 13 during the Green Box Arts Festival in Green Mountain Falls.
The exhibit, by Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno, weighs 20 tons and is 36-feet high. It consists of 16 modules, built of plexiglass, fiberglass, steel, cables, giant bolts and stainless steel mirrors. Visitors can climb inside each module.
The exhibit is built to reflect the environment in all angles.
“It’s a building and a sculpture,” said Graham Stewart, the engineer behind the assembly.
The installation was last seen on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. More than 500,000 people experienced the piece there, before it recently traveled via eight semi trucks to Colorado.
The free exhibit will be open from 1-7 p.m. daily. Only 11 people are allowed inside at a time at 20-minute intervals. Visitors must be able to enter and walk around safely. If that’s not the case, there will be a virtual online tour available.
