Seeing God in the Museum,” an essay written by Visiting Associate Professor of Religious Studies S. Brent Plate, appeared on The Huffington Post site on Sept. 23. Plate began his piece with an overview of the “James Turrell” show at the the Guggenheim Museum and a discussion of museums as temples. Referring to the Guggenheim, he wrote, “The museum, in ways that would have delighted Frank Lloyd Wright, becomes a temple.”

“With Aten Reign,” Plate continued, “Turrell assumes the museum-as-temple, adding his own objects of adoration, and offering a place for redemption. Only here, the object is light itself.”
