Skirball builds a real rainbow for Noah’s Ark

Just beyond the new Noah's Ark installation at the Skirball Cultural Center, where Asian elephants and Boringo giraffes tower, a lushly landscaped courtyard has been designed as a rainbow arbor. Rising from a base of rocks, Kahn's rainbow is a curved metal form that wraps around a walkway, spraying droplets of mist that coalesce to form a rainbow. It is the marriage of a museum exhibit and a symbolic natural oasis, recalling both the benevolent and destructive elements of nature and symbolizing God's promise to Noah not to flood the earth again.
