Texas Tuesday: Twilight Epiphany

On the campus of Rice University, adjacent to the Shepherd School of Music, is a skyspace that was created by American artist James Turrell. Inside this work of art, entitled “Twilight Epiphany,” are two levels which combined have seating for 120 people to enjoy an LED light sequence on most days of the week. These sequences can be seen about 40 minutes before sunrise and about 8-10 minutes before sunset. So our family decided to check it out last week.

The picture below shows what the skyspace looked like when we arrived well before sunset, and the tall building to the right is the Hermann Memorial Medical Plaza — located directly across the street from Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church.

Here’s what the skyspace eventually looked like from the inside on the lower level:
