ABOUT THE EVENT
An Evening with Lary Bloom, author of "Sol LeWitt: A Life of Ideas"
Join author Lary Bloom for an informed look at his recently published book Sol LeWitt: A Life of Ideas. One of the most influential and important artists of the twentieth century, LeWitt upended how art was made and marketed. A key figure in minimalism and conceptualism, he proclaimed that the work of the mind is much more important than that of the hand.
Bloom's work draws on his own personal recollections of LeWitt, who the author knew during the last twenty years of the artist's life, as well as LeWitt's personal letters, papers, and over one hundred original interviews with his friends and colleagues, including Chuck Close, Ingrid Sischy, Philip Glass, Adrian Piper, Jan Dibbetts, and Carl Andre.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a wine and cheese reception; the presentation begins at 6 p.m. in the Stanley Works Center for Education and Community Development. After his presentation Bloom will sign his books, which will be available for purchase in the NBMAA Museum Store.
