The Summer of James Turrell


Arizona is home to some of the country’s most notable artworks, including pieces by renowned artists that often do not make mainstream art news, such as James Turrell’s “Air Apparent” Skyspace at Arizona State University. While three major art institutions in the country will be showcasing new installations of works by artist James Turrell this summer (LACMA, Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Guggenheim Museum, NY), be sure to stop by Turrell’s brilliant Arizonan installation in if you live or happen to travel through the state this summer. But wait! This piece may still be stunning during the day day, but you’ll want to plan your sojourn around 30 minutes prior to sunset…or if you’re an early riser, 30 minutes prior to sunrise. Trust us.

“Air Apparent” is located on Arizona State University’s Tempe Campus on the west side of Rural Road at Terrace Road.
