Sol LeWitt, Plus Overheard at the Whitney

Oh, Sol LeWitt died. That's too bad. I saw the 2000 LeWitt show at the Whitney and the 2005 exhibit on the roof of the Met; both were great fun. Very vibrant, both expressive and painstaking. As a bonus, I overheard one of the best conversations ever while at the Whitney exhibit. A middle-aged Waspy couple was staring at one of the massive tinker-toyish sculptures. The wife whispered to her husband, "Maybe we could put that next to the fountain."

Riiiight.
