An excuse to visit Crystals mall: James Turrell's 'Akhob' exhibit

Renowned L.A. artist James Turrell recently made his Strip debut inside CityCenter, with a permanent installation entitled “Akhob, which means “pure water” in Egyptian. The artwork lives up to its aqueous namesake by washing over guests with a shower of monochromatic color. The immersive experience leaves visitors feeling refreshed and renewed.

Akhob occupies 1,200 square feet over the fourth floor of Louis Vuitton’s flagship store inside the Daniel Libeskind-designed Crystals mall. It marks Turrell’s largest “ganzfeld effect” — a visual sensory encounter altering perception through light and space — to date.
