Cross Cut, James Turrell at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Kansas City was graced with a piece by master light sculptor James Turrell early this year. Cross Cut was less an art object than an experience -- a mysterious, otherworldly sensation. To see it, viewers entered a darkened room. After a few moments, as their eyes adjusted to the dearth of light, a form appeared. By casting a dim glow across a couple plains of translucent scrim, Turrell created a geometric form that appeared to float in space. The shape was two rectangles set at an angle to each other and looked remarkably like a doorway that had been left ajar. For a few moments, it seemed that if we stepped through, we would set foot on the other side of the universe.
