Contemporary artist James Turrell uses light as his medium.

“I just have sort of an American view of deciding to instead of using paint to depict light, I actually am using light- which seems like a little more direct, to me, and I’m very interested in that.”


Mr. & Mrs. de Menil’s Art Collection

Mrs. de Menil commisioned a beautiful contemporary building to house the collection of art she and her husband put together.

“It’s a very eclectic collection. It’s about making connections between the ancient, the modern, the Western and the non-Western.”
