Last November, we reported the new meetinghouse for Chestnut Hill Friends was a total success. Light artist James Turrell’s addition to the structure–one of his signature skyspace light installations that are well-known throughout the country–made the building even better.

Uwishunu’s Kristina Jenkins reports many visitors have flocked to see the Skyspace since then (our own Liz Spikol did so, see the above link if you didn’t already!), with spectacular dawn and dusk viewings occurring throughout the year. This weekend, the mini event will be on Sunday. We suggest you go!

And don’t worry about the event time, either. The registration (yes, you must reserve your spot, but it’s still free!) lists the viewing as 4:39pm, so aim for a 4:20-4:30 arrival if you don’t want to miss the show!

Details below.
