Sol LeWitt at MoMA, New York, to June 29, 2009

Hi, everyone! Let me get this quick post in before I shut down for Earth Hour tonight,March 28, 8:30 - 9:30 p.m.There's always good stuff happening at the MoMA, Museum of Modern Art, New York. My visit to the MoMA was too long ago; I plan to return (looking back now,I was too young and too rushed to appreciate the art).

Focus: Sol LeWitt at MoMA, on view Dec. 5, 2008 to June 29, 2009

Sol LeWitt (1928-2007), an American artist whose work involved conceptual art and minimalism. His mediums included painting, drawing and structures.

Sol LeWitt said: "Artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach." -- from 0-9 (New York), 1969, and Art-Language (England), May 1969.

For those not in New York and unable to see the exhibit, enjoy this art byte - a behind-the-scenes installation of Focus: Sol LeWitt. E-N-J-O-Y :)

Here's an installation of Sol LeWitt's wall drawing as part of an earlier exhibition held at the MoMA last year: Color Chart: Reinventing Color, 1950 to Today

I used to live in NY, not far from the MOMA. Definitely miss my visits there. Thanks for the video footage and this interesting post that brought me a little taste of home.
