Event Navigation

Joseph’s Coat Skyspace is a triumph of technology, engineering, and aesthetics. 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 foot square aperture in the ceiling, you are invited to contemplate light, perception, and experience.  Joseph’s Coat is a unique experience.

► Yoga mats are encouraged

► Dress for outdoor conditions

► Arrive 30 minutes prior to sunset, the program will last one hour
