The New York Earth Room

Earth Room from Website
|The New York Earth Room: 141 Wooster St.|
Not far from Houston Street, there is a unique piece of “art” located in Wooster Street. Walter De Maria’s installation Earth Room has been displayed since the 1977. Except during maintenance, the exhibition hall is open from Wednesday to Sunday. The room is consisted of 127,300 kg of dirt taking up 3,600 square feet. Yes, it is a room filled up with soil surrounded by white walls. People are not allowed to walk on or even take photographs of the dirt, but are simply only allowed to see it with their own eyes. The simplicity and quietness of the Earth Room is amazing, especially when living in New York.
Go look at the dirt!
