Blog / Light in the Piazza


By Juline Chevalier

Sometimes I forget how beautiful the Nasher’s architecture is.  Then, I walk into the M.D.B.T. Semans Great Hall on a morning like today and I remind myself how lucky I am to work in this place.

The light changes throughout the day and causes the sculpture in the Great Hall evolve with it.  The shadow cast by this Julio Gonzalez sculpture is such a beautiful echo of the work itself and the Nasher’s glass and steel “ceiling.”  While the architecture may create some challenging acoustics (speaking of echoes), I do enjoy being able to sit in my office with the door open and hear the hustle and bustle of visitors in the museum.  It’s great to know that people are visiting and enjoying their time here.
