Well, this is certainly news to me. Definitely will be placed on a must-see list next time I visit my relatives in Argentina. The James Turrell Museum opened a couple of years ago within Estancia Colomé and its winery in northern Argentina, near Salta. The museum belongs to the Hess Art Collection and is fully devoted to Turrell’s work; all light and space. Fifty years worth of work are exhibited in nine rooms within a 1,700-meter space.

A winery and a James Turrell museum in one location? Sounds like a nice combination, to me.

  1. You have relatives in Argentina?
    Why can’t I ‘like’ your posts?
    Ok too many questions already. I’m from Buenos Aires, and I’ve been following this blog. I particularly enjoyed this one, of course 🙂
    I’ve been sharing some posts on my fb website, where I pick up different posts.
    Cheers!

  2. Hi Ana – Yes, aunts, uncles and lots of cousins all in BA.
    I don’t really know why you can’t ‘like’ the posts…I think there may be a delay, but I’m not sure.
    Thanks for following our blog and for your comment!
    Chau!
