Join Signe Wilkinson, lead Skyspace host for the Chestnut Hill Skyspace and Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, as she takes us on an exploration of the work of iconic American artist James Turrell. Turrell is known for cultivating peaceful and powerful environmental works of art that focus on human perception. Heralded globally as one of the most significant artists of our time, for more than fifty years James Turrell has created eloquent, deceptively simple artworks that explore the complexity of light as a medium. Best known among Turrell’s completed artworks are his Skyspaces—a combination of architecture, sculpture and atmosphere perfectly positioned in nature, with apertures in the ceiling open to the sky. These creative observatories—much like all of his work—are designed to be places of contemplative thought.

 

Green Box is thrilled to announce it will welcome a James Turrell Skyspace installation to the town of Green Mountain Falls. The first in Colorado and the first built into the side of a mountain, the Skyspace will be dedicated with the support of the Historic Green Mountain Falls Foundation at 1:30 p.m. on July 10 (meet at the Green Box Farm Stand). The piece joins an exclusive list of more than 85 Skyspaces the artist has designed and built throughout the world, including Argentina, Japan, Greece, Norway, and Australia.

 

A free lunch will be provided.
