James Turrell is a wonderful artist whose explorations of light are always interesting and often moving. Come here in the early evening as the sky is changing and get a great new perspective. This is one of the those hidden gems so there's rarely a...More

James Terrell's amazing light sculpture is something not to miss in Houston. You need to make reservations to get a seat and experience it from the inside.

Very unique and experience. It was very peaceful and quiet. Many people were in attendance. All were very polite and recognized personal space.

We went in the middle of the day and it was still very interesting. Great place to walk to and relax for a little while. Lots of shaded space. Nearby parking is available just in front of the Music School. The Skyscape is just behind.

And it's free! Do visit the website and plan ahead - you are supposed to make reservations for the sunset sequence.

It's very calming to watch the colors change on the ceiling of this unique site!! It may be the only Turrell's Twilight light show that allows one to view the experience on two levels. It lasts about 15 minutes. Afterwards, one can see the lighted...More
