Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective comprises 105 of LeWitt’s large-scale wall drawings, spanning the artist’s career from 1969 to 2007. These occupy nearly an acre of specially built interior walls that have been installed—per LeWitt’s own specifications—over three stories of a historic mill building situated at the heart of MASS MoCA’s campus. The 27,000-square-foot structure, known as Building #7, has been fully restored for the exhibition by Bruner/Cott & Associates architects, which has closely integrated the building into the museum’s main circulation plan through a series of elevated walkways, a dramatic new vertical lightwell, and new stairways.
A new immersive app, developed by The Sol LeWitt Estate and Microsoft, transports users into LeWitt’s creative world with the ability to scan select wall drawings, take a virtual tour of his studio, and uncover never before seen archival video and audio. Learn more and download the app here.
Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective is a collaboration of MASS MoCA, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Williams College Museum of Art.
The 2021-2022 restoration of Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective is made possible by the generous support of an anonymous donor. The exhibition’s ongoing care and conservation is made possible by Agnes Gund.
