Photos on Friday: 'Multiverse' light tunnel at National Gallery of Art

The Smithsonian’s National Gallery of Art has a lot of amazing things in it, but one thing I’d never heard about was the underground tunnel that links the east and west wings of the museum.

Named “Multiverse”, the tunnel is a light sculpture created by Leo Villareal, an American artist. According to the National Gallery of Art’s website, the work is comprised of about 41,000 computer-programmed LED lights. The work to build this interesting walkway began in 2005 and was installed in late 2008.

Today visitors can walk between the two wings in either direction. It's a cool experience, we went back during spring break and did it again. These photos are from this past February.
