Happy birthday to seminal conceptual artist Sol LeWitt, born this day in 1928. The artist's 1982 “Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions” is currently installed in gallery 399.http://met.org/1LW373q
Here's a photo of the finished installation of Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawing #1261 (July 2008). Martin Puryear's bronze sculpture Le Prix (2006) commands the floor and on the pedestals at left are works by George E. Ohr and Eva Hesse. Come see The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art for yourself!
