 If you and your family find yourself in  Berkeley, California , visit the Berkeley Art Museum at 2626 Bancroft Way Berkeley. You'll find an interactive installation created by architect, designer, artist Thom Faulders, entitled "BAMscape." The very user- friendly sculpture, is a landscape of bright orange forms. Curved and cozy as their core is foam and so engaging to the eye, as their shapes  rise and fall.  The abstract waves beckon you to sit and test every "lumpy, bumpy," (as overheard  by my source). Find your way to Gallery B and enjoy this expansive work from the lobby or the balconies above.  The commissioned sculpture will preside in the central atrium until May 27,2012. 
Perfect for all.  Children 12 and under are always free. Everyone is free every first Thursday.
