Turrell Resonance at the de Young
6:00, 7:15, and 8:00 p.m.
Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden: “Three Gems” by James Turrell
Green Sound moves to the de Young for this special performance part of “Cultural Encounters: Friday Nights at the de Young”. Nestled inside a grass-covered hill in de Young’s Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden is world-renowned artist James Turell’s installation “Three Gems.” This “skyspace” is a subterranean installation that features a view of the sky altered by L.E.D. lighting effects, and that highlights changing light and weather conditions outside. In this incredible sonic event, contemporary experimental music duo Myrmyr (cello, violin, objects, voice) will create acoustic compositions in and around “Three Gems”, using no electrical power and only the resonance created by the sculpture to amplify and reflect Turrell’s work. Note: This special performance takes place in the Barbro Osher Sculpture Garden – Entrance off the de Young café. “Three Gems” entrance is on the far right side of the garden (facing out from the de Young café).

July Artist-in-Residence Jeanine Briggs, Transfigurations
1:00-8:30 p.m.
Artist Studio/Kimball Education Gallery
June 30 to August 1, Closing Reception Friday July 30 with an artist talk “Fantastic Drastic Plastic”
Be prepared to see different things and see things differently, as you encounter the figurative art that Jeanine Briggs creates from reused and repurposed materials: life-size human figures, oversized chess individuals, small fertility and guardian figures, and various exotic life forms that inhabit our living planet—in reality or imagination. Just as Jeanine draws inspiration from nature and from cultural interpretations of the human experience, she welcomes your questions and comments, which in turn influence the direction of her work. Jeanine invites all visitors to engage in the creation of an early 21st-century Detritussaurus. Participants will bring this large-scale, colorful, and tactile work of public art into being from a surprising array of discarded items common to our everyday lives.
