James Turrell at the Hirshhorn tomorrow

This sounds like it will be a very cool lecture. James Turrell, an artist concerned with light and space, will be speaking at 7 p.m. at the Hirshhorn.

From the web site: Since 1979, James Turrell has been working with light and space on an enormous scale, turning the 400,000 year-old Roden Crater into a kind of celestial observatory with spaces that will engage the viewer with the light of the sun, moon, and stars. Richard Andrews, president of the Skystone Foundation which administers the project, will join Turrell for a discussion of the artist's career, particularly the development of the massive undertaking that is Roden Crater.
