"Three Gems" Alterations

In 2014, artist James Turrell (b. 1943) contacted the Museums to review Three Gems, the “skyspace” sited 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 museum’s new building in 2005.
