Public Art Fund Talks at The New School: Working with Sol LeWitt
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center at The New School (Arnhold Hall, 55 W. 13th St., 2nd Fl., Manhattan)
The final talk of New York Stories, the Public Art Fund’s spring 2011 series, is “Working with Sol,” a conversation between some of the people who worked most closely with the late artist Sol LeWitt throughout his career. It features gallerist Paula Cooper, artist Pat Steir, and Jeremy Ziemann, principal assistant to LeWitt, specializing in his sculptures entitled “Structures.”
Moderated by Public Art Fund director and chief curator Nicholas Baume.
This talk ties in with Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965–2006, the Public Art Fund’s upcoming exhibition at City Hall Park, which opens on May 24. For the exhibition, a map is being produced featuring works by LeWitt in public spaces in New York City — among them The New School Art Collection’s “Wall Drawing #1073: Bars of Color” from 2003. Visit this two-story mural, a gift of the artist and one of his last public commissions, at Arnhold Hall, 55 West 13th Street.
