After the James Turrel’s piece everything else seemed to pale by comparison, however I will continue my journey into the night. SMoCA, ( the only permanent museum dedicated solely to contemporary arts in the state of Arizona). http://www.somca.org housed 3 immersive installation pieces by Bruce Monroe that were also quite experiential and I rather liked. They are difficult to capture being comprised of light, film and sound. If interested you should visit his web site: http://www.brucemonroe.co.uk/
There was an exhibition of neon and light housed in their beautiful library designed by Will Bruder who also worked with James Turrell on Skyscape Knights Rise and along with James Carpenter defining the art and architecture volumes of SMoCA. A delight of forms, materials and colours.
The Art walk was rather ho hum save for the Bruce Monroe temporary installation on the canal composed of fishing rods and lures. They were 12 feet in diameter each and were illuminated. The evening concluded at the Bollinger Atelier, which I have often seen advertised in SCULPTURE magazine so it was interesting to visit their facilities. Another exhausting albeit stimulating day at the conference. Time at long last to rest before the final day.
