Greet the Light
The Chestnut Hill Skyspace, Greet the Light, is a permanent art installation designed by the artist James Turrell and is part of the Chestnut Hill Friends Meetinghouse. A Skyspace is a room created with an opening, or aperture, in the ceiling where viewers see the sky. There are over ## Skyspaces around the world each unique to their surroundings and purpose. The Skyspace at the Chestnut Hill Friends Meetinghouse features cove lighting which James Turrell designed to interact with natural light creating a magical sequence that challenges our perceptions of light, color, and space. Greet the Light is timed specifically to correlate with the rising or setting of the sun, when the light in our world changes most dramatically. Every experience is different. The Skyspace is open to the public at designated times every week throughout the year, weather permitting, but not during Sunday worship services.
