A maelstrom (or malström/malstrøm in the Scandinavian languages) is a very powerful whirlpool; a large, swirling body of water. What it is for your family? A modern art sculpture kids can actually touch.
We checked it out last night on the Met's roof. From now until October 25,2009 take the kids to Roxy Paine on the Roof.
American artist Roxy Paine (b. 1966) delivered a 130-foot-long by 45-foot-wide stainless-steel sculpture, especially for the Museums Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Kids will love it. Snacks available on the roof from 10 am until close.
