Joseph's Coat Skyspace 

  • Saturday January 17
  • The Skyspace, created by internationally renowned artist James Turrell, is a gathering place for contemplation, and  sustained experience.  At sunset, a sophisticated system of LED lights is employed to change the color of the space.  In doing so, the artist changes the context in which you view the sky and can radically change your perception of the color of the sky and its spatial relation to you. As you gaze up at the sky through the 24’ square aperture in the ceiling, you are invited to contemplate light, perception and experience.  Joseph's Coat is a unique experience.
