5. James Turrell
Location: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10128
Kick off your summer romance by taking your date to the Guggenheim Museum to see James Turrell's first solo museum exhibition in New York since 1980. The exhibition, which opened last week on the summer solstice, features Aten Reign, a major, immersive project that utilized the museum's architecture to dramatically transform the space. The American artist re-conceived the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright's famous building, filling the dome's internal space with natural and artificial lighting which fades from cerulean to magenta. It's sure to set the mood!
