"Certainly Sol LeWitt is far and away the greatest artist the City of Hartford and surrounding area has ever produced. In so saying, I am most certainly aware of the work of Frederic E. Church, a betterknown artist in certain circles, whose large and currently very expensive canvases are simultaneously vulgar and overworked, without a trace of poetry or genuine feeling for nature."

John Caldwell, "Sol LeWitt and the Walls of the Wadsworth Atheneum," The New York Times, September 27, 1981

MASS MoCA may be the high temple of Sol LeWitt these days, but the Wadsworth Atheneum, in Hartford, Connecticut, is also doing an able job of celebrating the artist, hometown hero. Through August 15, the museum is showing “Sol LeWitt: Hartford’s Native Son,” a concise overview of the artist’s career. The museum also has on view three of the five LeWitt wall drawings it owns. The museum has been a longtime supporter of the late Minimalist, having rescued a wall drawing he made for Hartford’s Civic Center, when the municipal government rejected it as “too intellectual.”

The Wadsworth happens to be a little over two hours from New York by car, making it a perfect place to stop for a lengthy break on a four-hour drive to Boston, where the Museum of Fine Arts just so happens to have a Jim Lambie installation on view that riffs on LeWitt’s design. The Lambie, which is made of vinyl tape, went up in November 2007. Less than a year later, the artist used the design for the floor of his show at c/o Atle Gerhardsen in Berlin.
