Sol LeWitt: On the Wall

Since 2001 Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing #959 has been a central part of the Williams College Museum of Art visitor experience. This fall, #959 will be removed and replaced with a new LeWitt wall drawing.
To document your experience of this work in its final months, guest artist Mark Parsons is creating a new site-specific intervention that invites the public to consider the temporality of the wall drawing. For this project, Mark is collecting selfies of museum visitors taken in front of the LeWitt.
