Next time you're in Las Vegas, and you need to escape Las Vegas... schedule a viewing of light installation Akhob ('ancient Egyptian for 'pure water') by artist James Turrell above the Louis Vuitton store at City Center. Akhob is staged in two colorfully lit chambers to prepare visitors for the sensing space, where they perceive a light-filled void of indeterminate dimension. Access is limited to four guests at time, to allow them to absorb the sensory experience, and visits last about 20 to 25 minutes. [–Robb Report].
