James Turrell Skyspace: Air Apparent at ASU
This post is by Kristin Bauer, an artist living and working in Arizona. Visit her website at http://www.kristinbauerart.com.
In Arizona, and the West in general, lie many environments that are in harmony with sculpture and spatially informed art. With the vastness of space and the relationship we have with light and the climate in this region, it’s no wonder that the California Light and Space Movement took off where and when it did, and really no wonder at all that James Turrell has done a great deal of beautiful work in Arizona, including The Roden Crater, which shall be the swan song of his oeuvre.
If you find yourself with some extra time in Phoenix, get out there and explore! The city is teeming with unique adventures, and exciting places for dinner and a cocktail afterwards. Randal Archibold of the New York Times sums it all up for you…
