The Rice University Thresher reports that the school’s new James Turrell Skyspace is having some unanticipated conflicts with other uses of the busy campus. Lighting for night-time games on the nearby intramural sports fields was spilling over into the artist’s carefully choreographed light show. Unlike the similar situation in Dallas, where the Nasher Sculpture Center’s Turrell Skyspace has been closed for lack of sky (a less-publicized side effect of the new Museum Tower next door), the university is scrambling to maintain harmony: busy adjusting the lighting fixtures, and sporting schedules and closing the Skyspace on Mondays and Wedmesdays to accomodate intramural sports matches.
