Wall Drawing 797 Installation


Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing #797 Installation

A unique aspect to the CMA exhibition Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt is Wall Drawing #797, first installed by LeWitt in 1995. The museum gathered volunteers from the staff and community to participate in the installation of this work (under the supervision of LeWitt’s studio) as seen in the video above. Check out this drawing and more at Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt, running through 7/31/16.
