Last night on Twitter, art collective Random International asked for purple rain in its "Rain Room" today, in honor and memory of Prince. The piece, a room full of rain from above that lets up only where there are people below, is installed at LACMA, which was happy to oblige. The results are ethereal and sexy, just like Prince would've wanted. "Rain Room" is set to end its first run this weekend and will reopen after some conservation work on May 19.
Dear @LACMA please make the rain purple tomorrow. RIP Prince— Random International (@rAndomHQ) April 22, 2016
Dear @rAndomHQ, it's your call—you created #RainRoom after all. Tomorrow, LACMA will have #PurpleRain in memory of Prince ☔️— LACMA (@LACMA) April 22, 2016
