Putting up the Sol Lewitt Wall Paintings at MASS MoCA

    The artists at work call this "dance" "the Boom-Boom."

    More on this great exhibition soon. The Sol LeWitt retrospective that you see going up at MASS MoCA is beyond stunning. I'd seen the spaces empty and had been told what would go up, but you can have no idea of their splendor and impact and how they transform your being until you see them.

    One hundred works, each wall size, created over forty years. Together they cover almost an acre of wall space at MASS MoCA. Where else would have the space for this? This will open in November and they'll remain in place for at least twenty five years. Sol LeWitt was involved with the exhibition, too bad he didn't get to see it before his death in April 2007.

    And from "dance music" to one of the "quietest" buildings you'll ever visit.

    Where everything is at rest. I'll also post soon on the very peaceful new Tadao Ando Clark Art Institute galleries in the woods; and the adjoining Williamstown Art Conservation Center. Together with the Ando terrace you see below, from which to contemplate the beautiful Berkshires.

    But right now, on this Sunday morning, I'm just enjoying this.
