“The idea becomes a machine that makes the art.”

Sol LeWitt

Over the course of his prolific forty-year career, Sol LeWitt created nearly 1,300 wall drawings. The conceptual power of LeWitt’s drawings rests in their ability to bring creative communities together: During the fall of 2015, a group of Williams’ students installed wall drawing #1089 at WCMA. Drawing #1089 was executed in collaboration with Gabriel Hurier, a master draughtsman from the LeWitt Estate, and Professor of Art History Charles W. Haxthausen. The site was also home to wall drawings: #559 in 1988 and #959 in 2001.
