Passing Through the Twinkle of LightsOne of the most interesting works of art in the National Gallery sits underground. Created by American artist Leo Villareal, "Multiverse" is the largest and most complex light sculpture, experienced as you pass through the walkway linking the East and West Buildings of the National Gallery of Art. The work features approximately 41,000 computer-programmed LED (light-emitting diode) nodes that run through channels along the 200-foot-long space.
