One of our very own Pace staffers visited Rice University in Houston and took these incredible shots of the James Turrell Skyspace titled Twilight Epiphany that has recently been completed on campus.
Rice University described the construction and future uses of the Skyspace as: ”Constructed of grass, concrete, stone and composite steel, the pyramid-like structure is equipped with an LED light performance that projects onto the ceiling and through the 72-foot square knife-edge roof, that is open to the sky. Turrell’s composition of light complements the natural light present at sunrise and sunset, and it transforms the skyspace into a locale for contemplation and reflective interaction with the rest of the campus and the natural world. There will be light shows daily at sunrise and sunset.”

To coincide with the Gallery’s 50th anniversary in 2010, Pace has launched thepacegallery.com, an encyclopedic search-based site culled from the gallery’s extensive archives. The site is unlike that of any other art institution in its innovative search feature: it is built on its own search engine, so that visitors can type in a keyword and peruse a living archive of 50 years (and counting) of The Pace Gallery.
