LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- An exhibition featuring the works of light artist James Turrell has opened at the University of Kansas' Spencer Museum of Art.

Called "James Turrell: Gard Blue," the work is a projection of blue light in an enclosed space. The Lawrence Journal-World (http://is.gd/ItbwJZ) reports that holograms created more recently by Turrell surround the main work.

The 70-year-old Turrell has had a big year. New York City's Guggenheim museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston are all featuring installations of Turrell's work this year.

Turrell attended a Saturday night reception at the Spencer Museum on the eve of the exhibition opening to the public. The exhibition is free and will remain on view through May 18.
