"First he created a sun for London.
Then he created a waterfall for New York.
Now the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has created a rainbow for Aarhus."
The world-famous Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has created this permanent work of art consisting of a circular, 150-metre-long and three metre-wide circular walkway in glass in all the colours of the spectrum on the roof of the Danish art museum ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum. Mounted on slender columns 3.5 metres above the roof and with a diameter of 52 metres, this spectacular creation extends from one edge to the other of the facade of the cubic museum building. There are both stairs and elevator to provide visitors to the museum with access to Your rainbow panorama. Then they can stroll through the circular, panoramic walkway providing a fantastic view of the city and the bay, a view in all the colours of the rainbow.
