Nashville Trip: Day 3 - Turrell's Skyspace

The view from above, outside... you have to find the path that leads down and around to the entrance of "Blue Pesher".

The view started out grey and cloudy...

... but I stayed long enough that the clouds moved on and the sun created another circle within the skyspace: sky above, light on the wall, volcanic sand below.

I fell in love.

Denver Art Museum

Loved the Modern Masters exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, plus the ticket gets you into the Clyfford Still Museum - awesome! And don't forget to stop by the DAM's Contemporary wing - they've changed out a few pieces there that you don't want to miss.
