James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyspace Free Admission Thursday

Free Admission Thursday from 6am to 10pm at James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyspace - see INFO below. Sharing this vision is alumna, Trustee and Art Committee member, Suzanne Deal Booth, who has a long history with Rice. Deal Booths involvement began when she was an art history student at Rice and assisted art collector and philanthropist Dominique de Menil. This early opportunity exposed Deal Booth to the value of cultural patronage. While working towards her masters degree at New York Universitys Institute of Fine Arts, Deal Booth was also an assistant to artist, James Turrell. She assisted him with his first realized Skyspace at PS1 in Queens and later with his retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art. In 2007, Deal Booth began a conversation with the Art Committee, and President Leebron, about approaching James Turrell, and commissioning him to conceive a Skyspace for Rice University. After initial discussions, the project quickly became a priority for Rices new Public Art program, as it would further the programs mission to challenge and inspire the community in a vitally important way.
