Museum Tower Forces Nasher to Shutter Tending, (Blue)

Museum Tower is walking to the sky and beginning to interfere with James Turrell’s Tending, (Blue). So the Nasher has closed the installation in its garden. Peter Simek has details and pics on FrontRow. But as I said over on that post, I think the Nasher is being shortsighted about this.

They’ve closed Tending to mollify Turrell, but seeing the pictures on FrontRow actually makes me want to go visit the installation. When Museum Tower is finished, it will clearly destroy what Turrell intended. But right now the tower is like a giant, living Alexander Calder mobile. Men are crawling all over it, that crane is swinging around, unpredictably entering the view from the Tending aperture.

Come on, Nasher. We want to watch.
