James Turrell Shapes Reality--and a Gallery Space LACMA is currently showing a retrospective of 50 years of work by James Turrell; the Guggenheim Manhattan is about to open a show in which the light and space artist drenches the interior of Frank Lloyd Wright's rotunda; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will shortly open James Turrell: The Light Inside . Meanwhile his LA gallery, Kayne Griffin Corcoran , has launched its new space with Sooner Than Later, Roden Crater , a show of drawings, photographs charting his four-decade work on his Roden Crater project. The exhibition also includes a Meditation Room, from his “Perceptual Cells” series, one of which can also be found at LACMA. In addition to the work on display, Turrell also had a strong hand in the creation of the gallery space itself.

Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
