Ernest “Ernie” Silva, 1948-2014
Located: Upper level
Originally commissioned in 1994, the current structure was built in 2008 and is the second incarnation of this artwork. The Rain House evolved from the idea of offering a contemplative and creative space where children could explore and play as they might on a rainy day at home.
The Rain House serves as a playhouse and was originally home to the museum’s bi-national programming. The artwork continues to inspire many different workshops for our visitors and members.
