Later this month, Tucson’s Museum of Contemporary Art will feature art installation of a very unique kind.

From June 20 to September 26, patrons will be invited to swim in three custom-built, completely code-compliant, street-legal mobile dumpster pools, according to an NPR report.

"The pools measure 24 feet by eight feet each and will be connected by elevated decks," writes Vanessa Barchfield. "... all the amenities one would expect at a pool will be there - cabanas, towels and lifeguards - and some more unusual ones like an occasional film screening or musical performance."

Coincidentally, Tucson’s Museum of Contemporary Art isn't the only museum to feature a swimming installation this summer. However, the one opening at the National Building Museum and spanning across its Great Hall, the BEACH will "will cover 10,000 square feet and include an 'ocean' of nearly one million recyclable translucent plastic balls." Part of the museum's summer block party, the  interactive architectural installation will bring the quintessential summer experience of going to the beach to downtown Washington, D.C.
