Wall to Wall – Sol LeWitt’s 1,200 Drawings

Sol LeWitt is easily one of the most well known artists of the modern century known for his artistic drawings and sculptures that reflected the ideas of conceptual art and minimalism.  I took particular interest in this artist because of his hometown being one that I have visited regularly; Hartford, Connecticut.  His works are currently being shown at the MoMa with 54 days left in the exhibition.  Below is information from the MoMa website and directions on how to get there:

Over the course of his prolific, influential career, Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) produced more than 1,200 wall drawings. This installation, which fills a single large gallery, features one of LeWitt’s celebrated examples from the Museum’s collection, Wall Drawing #260 (1975). The work’s subtitle serves to describe the installation: “on black walls, all two-part combinations of white arcs from corners and sides, and white straight, not-straight, and broken lines.”
