Look, art exhibits don't often make me giddy. But the Nasher Sculpture Center has something that patrons of all ages will enjoy.
"Sightings" by Martin Creed has, among other things, a room filled with 9,000 golden balloons. That's it.
A guard lets you or your group in to the room for you to explore. The balloons are more than 10 feet tall and you can roam through them, take pictures and get lost. When you walk in, you are told to follow the grain in the floor should you begin to feel disoriented.
There is more to Creed's exhibit than a room filled with balloons, but you might find yourself so enamored with the experience, you forget about everything else.
The exhibit is there through June 19. Admission is $5 for everyone with a valid student id.
