Time in Skyspace at the Bentonville Museum, Crystal Bridges

Posted by Jeremy Mason McGraw on 01 May 2014

I spent some time in Skyspace at the Bentonville Museum, Crystal Bridges. ThisĀ James Turrell creation is one of the less traveled jems of the public art projects in Bentonville AR. Sitting on a hill near the Compton Gardens entrance to the museum grounds, it puts on a colorful show with the changing sky every dusk and dawn. The internal color of the space changes to contrast and compliment the changing colors of the sky in a 45 minute show that is worth a walk.
