Tending (Blue), part of the artist’s Skyspace series, was subsequently closed, with a sign on the front reading: “Because a clear view of the sky from the interior of Tending (Blue) is now obstructed by Museum Tower, the artist, James Turrell, has declared the work destroyed. Turrell has created a new design for a skyspace on this site, which will eliminate Museum Tower from the viewer’s line of sight.”
