Finally a Sky Space!

Part of a collection I had read and written about but had never had the chance to visit! 
It was worth the wait! An entire corridor of "light" architecture created from Dan Flavin's installation rooms, leading to Irwin's window cuts and not so imaginary walls, to finally arrive at Sky Space...
