Southern California–based artist Charles Long calls his latest interactive mixed-media installation Pet Sounds. However, don't expect Brian Wilson to play a role. Instead, you'll find a series of brightly colored pipe railings—which all meet up in a common seating area, where the railing will then morph into big, undulating blobs that vibrate and make noise when you rub them—on the Oval Lawn of Madison Square Park. We're going to call it our perfect low-maintenance pet for the summer.
Mondays-Sundays, noon. Starts: May 8. Continues through Sept. 10, 2012
