Songs in the Skyspace is Landmarks' monthly music series hosted inside James Turrell’s Skyspace, The Color Inside. After a successful launch in fall 2019, the series was shuttered in March 2020 in response to the pandemic. The program returns this fall with a dynamic roster of musicians from across musical genres. Representing a diverse mix of voices and instruments, the program offers a unique way to engage with Turrell’s elegant light sequence.
Songs in the Skyspace runs monthly on select evenings during the sunset light sequence. Free reservations are required and can be made online. Please note that reservations tend to fill up three weeks in advance of performances.
