PLANNING YOUR VISIT

Because each artwork in the museum is created specifically for the space you view it in, it is sometimes necessary to close galleries while we create new work. For more information about our policies, visit the Visitor Tips section of our website.

 

OSGEMEOS ZOETROPE

The zoetrope in Osgemeos' Lyrical will run on the following days and times:
Fridays: 12pm + 3pm
Saturdays: 12pm + 3pm
Sundays: 2pm + 4pm
Space is limited in this portion of the exhibit, and entrance will be on a first come, first served basis.

 

VISITING JAMES TURRELL + DENNIS MAHER WORKS

In an effort to streamline the viewing of James Turrell's Pleiades and Dennis Maher's A Second Home, the works will be ticketed each Saturday and Sunday. The Admissions Desk will provide you with a time slot during check-in. Times are provided on a first come, first serve basis, and cannot be reserved in advance. Due to the high volume of visitors on weekends, we are not able to guarantee entrance to this work.

 

ACCUPUNCTURE BY HANS PETER KUHN

This imaginitive light sculpture appears to "pierce" the roof of the Mattress Factory, with what Kuhn calls "light sticks." The installation is best viewed from various points throughout the city and can be seen from 6-11pm daily.
