The Amon Carter Museum of American Art has a colorful addition to its atrium.

The installation of Plexus no. 34 – about 80 miles of thread constructed to depict a rainbow – is complete and will be on display Tuesday through Sept. 2, 2018.

The piece is part of the Plexus series by Dallas-based artist Gabriel Dawe, whose work has been featured in places like the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.

“These structures are very ethereal and the thread looks so thin, kind of disappears, leaving only color behind,” Dawe said. “They really look like rays of light frozen in mid-air.”

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price was one of the first to see the work.

“This is incredible,” she said. “It makes me want to sing the song ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ ”

Check out photos and video of Plexus no. 34 below.
