Inside the James Turrell / Jim Goldstein Skyspace, on the lush grounds of Jim Goldstein's extraordinary and lavishly maintained Sheats / Goldstein Residence.

The house is a John Lautner design in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.  Mr. Goldstein had hoped to have James Turrell and John Lautner design the Skyspace together. Both work with cave-like sheltering enclosures, looking outwards to bring in and worship the vista, the light and the heavens. Lautner and Turrell had a few discussions, but did not collaborate on this.  That was not meant to be.

Mr. Goldstein was extraordinarily generous today to allow me to bring this year's USC Annenberg / Getty Arts Journalism Fellows to his house, and to spend time sharing it with us.  We thank him.

As we walked up the driveway, leaving behind this particular paradise, some were giddy, some were glad, all were grateful.
