The art is the idea. A look at Sol LeWitt
With the New Britain Museum of American Art staging two concurrent exhibitions of Sol LeWitt’s prints, we listen back to our 2019 hour on the Hartford native, one of the giants of conceptualist and minimalist art.
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.
