The Kayne Griffin Corcoran gallery on South La Brea opened with an inaugural exhibition of work by artist James Turrell. The exhibition includes drawings, photographs and models, as well as notes, tools, and architectural plans, of Turrell’s vision for the Roden Crater in Arizona. The big draw at Saturday's opening was the Skyspace room, where visitors sit in reclining chairs and gaze up at a dome Turrell created with subtle light changes in color filling the room. At sunset, the dome is opened to the sky.
