The Art Is The Idea: A Look At Sol LeWitt

Jul 30, 2019

Hartford native Sol LeWitt was one of the giants of conceptualist and minimalist art.

As an artist, he abandoned the long histories of painting and drawing and sculpture in favor of his Wall Drawings and Structures.

And as an art figure, he abandoned the conventions of celebrity and resisted ever even having his picture taken.

This hour, a look at Connecticut's own Sol LeWitt.

GUESTS:

  • David Areford - Associate professor of art history at the University of Massachusetts Boston
  • Lary Bloom - The author, most recently, of Sol LeWitt: A Life of Ideas
  • Andrea Miller-Keller - Was the Emily Hall Tremaine Curator of Contemporary Art at the Wadsworth Atheneum from 1968 to 1998
