Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings: Expanding a Legacy

Exhibition Website

Mar 2 2018 - Jan 27 2019

Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings: Expanding a Legacy features seven drawings newly donated to the Gallery from the artist’s estate, making the Gallery’s collection of LeWitt’s work in this signature medium the largest of any museum worldwide. The drawings on view represent a range of the artist’s techniques, including bold geometric patterns executed in colorful ink wash and works composed entirely of fine graphite lines. 

The exhibition also marks the inauguration of the Sol LeWitt Study Center at Yale West Campus, home to the LeWitt Wall Drawing Archive, which was founded to ensure the integrity of this groundbreaking artist’s process and to secure his legacy for future generations.
