James Turrell, Light Reign— Henry Art Gallery (Seattle, WA), 4100 15th Ave. N., Seattle, WA
James Turrell and Alice Aycock sculptures need to kick it up a notch; neither yield particularly interesting Google map results thus far. For those just catching up with us, yesterday Art Fag City issued a reader challenge: Seek out as many outdoor sculptures by the aforementioned artists, and those who attend the final day of the search Saturday at Capricious space will garner themselves a limited edition zine of our search results. Also through this challenge we’ll finally have an answer to which artist is the most satellite friendly.
Here at the HQ we spent a bit of time searching out a few sculptures, which we’ve listed below. Apologies to Alice Aycock, who clearly should be out in the lead — we simply got to her later, and haven’t searched some of the larger outdoor sculptures. Look forward to a full list of works likely to be found on Google tomorrow!
James Turrell, Skyspace– Live Oak Friends Meeting House (Houston, TX), 1318 W 26th St, Houston, TX 77008
This may be cheating, but the satellite view resembled nothing, so we posted the Google Street view of the building. Whatever art aura this piece has, we’ve successfully removed it.
James Turrell, The Light Inside— Museum of Fine Arts (Houston, TX)
1001 Bissonnet Street Houston, TX 77005
Don’t bother searching for this piece — it’s inside the museum. In an effort to be thorough however, we’re providing a link to building anyway.
Hi Test– Mondrian Hotel (West Hollywoof, CA)
8440 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA”Ž
Google Map link.
I assume the Turrell Skylight is there somewhere.
James Turrell, Milk Run— Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC), Independence Avenue SW & 7th Street SW, Washington, DC 20004
Another enclosed space that looks a little too inconsequential to post. Google map link here.
James Turrell, Atlan— Art Tower Mito (Ibaraki, Japan)
We’ve got nothing!
Alice Aycock, Swing Over— George H. Fallon Office Building (Baltimore, MD)
Alice Aycock, What the Traveler Needs for Mechanical Operations on the Stars— Philadelphia International Airport (Philadelphia, PA)
No need to search this puppy out: it’s an indoor sculpture. But here‘s a Google map anyway.
We couldn’t locate the actual sculpture, but the Google map is here.
Alice Aycock, Tuning Fork Oracle, Bloustein Building, Rutgers University, 1997
Admittedly, it’s probably necessary to have spent a fair amount of time art Rutgers University to locate that blip on the map. As a graduate I’m sufficiently qualified.
Alice Aycock, Maze 2000— University of South Florida (Tampa, FL), 4202 E Fowler Ave, Tampa, FL 33620
Thanks to Stead for locating this for us!
