Live Oak Friends Meeting's Skyspace Reopening
The Live Oak Friends Meeting, a Quaker Meeting House, will re-open its Skyspace on Feb. 27. Viewings of the Skyspace have been closed since August 2013 due to flood damage resulting from a broken pipe.
Opened in 2001, the Live Oak Friends Meeting House is a community space for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) created by renowned artist James Turrell, a birthright and practicing Quaker. The architect is Houston-based Leslie Elkins. The Skyspace, titled One Accord, is an integral element of the Live Oak Friends Meeting House. Though it resembles a skylight, it allows the viewer to experience "a light that inhabits space, so that you feel light to be physically present."
The Skyspace will be open (weather permitting) every Friday evening and on the first Sunday evening of the month, approximately 30 minutes before sunset for viewing of the Skyspace.
