This week, Landmarks staff attended a dress rehearsal of Rolling Ryot’s original sound installation for The Color Inside, a Skyspace by James Turrell. It was clear that the performance series would be a hit from the beginning. While reservations were booked within a couple of days, we want to encourage future partnerships with local arts groups that enhance engagement with the collection. If you didn’t get a reservation, then be sure to join our mailing list or tune into social media for announcements!
