Visit James Turrell's Three Gems in the Osher Sculpture Garden during its optimal viewing time—at sunset! Open 5–8:45 pm.
In 2014, artist James Turrell (b. 1943) contacted the Museums to refurbush Three Gems (2005), a site-specific “skyspace” located in a grass-covered hill in the Osher Sculpture Garden. The work was approaching its tenth anniversary at the de Young, having been installed during the opening of the new building in 2005.
