BROOKLYN - There won't be any "hands off" signs around a new art exhibit at Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Visitors will run into interesting pieces of art along the way, and the exhibitors are begging people to touch it.

"This summer, Public Art Fund is presenting a new exhibition by the Danish artist Yeppa Hein, it's called 'Please Touch the Art,' which is really the whole idea behind the show. We want people to interact and engage with the works," says Kellie Honeycutt, of the Public Art Fund.

The Appearing Rooms exhibit has been increasingly popular as the temperature rises, putting an artistic spin on the traditional water fountain.

Social benches throughout the park have been modified and come in different shapes and sizes.

The exhibit runs through next April, but the Appearing Rooms water fountain will only last through the summer months.
