James Turrell “Quiet Views” at the Guggenheim

I saw James Turrell’s exhibition at the Guggenheim a few weeks ago, and sure enough, the big crowds made for a few distractions while trying to observe the changing nature of his piece “Aten Reign” in the museum’s rotunda. So it was interesting to receive an e-mail today regarding the Guggenheim offering 8 time slots for members to have a “quiet view” of the exhibition.

The “quiet view” concept is to offer an “intimate, hour-long opportunity open to members only, which allows a fuller experience of the meditative nature of Turrell’s work.” If you are a member, the Quiet Views take place on Monday, August 12th and August 19th, from 7:30-8:30 pm and 9:00-10:00 pm, and again on Monday, September 9th and September 23rd, from 7:30-8:30 pm and 9:00-10:00 pm. If you’re not a member, well, that’s why they sent the e-mail … they’re looking for a few more!
