Get a bird’s eye view of the installation of our latest exhibition, Manolo Valdés: Monumental Sculpture.
I can barely comprehend how amazing the Instituto Inhotim must be. In the “middle of the Brazilian nowhere,” the brainchild of the mining magnate Bernardo Paz, Inhotim is a botanical garden, experimental art space, and open-air museum spanning over 1 million square meters in southeast Brazil (it was also recently profiled by the New York Times). A bit closer to home, each day we’re getting closer and closer to the official opening of Manolo Valdés Monumental Sculpture, our own exploration of art and landscape. Has anyone been to Inhotim? I would love to hear what you thought! ~AR
Watch this space! 7,000 plants in red, yellow, blue and white will soon be bursting in vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines between the West Entrance and the Italian Fountain. The idea for this garden was conceived by conceptual artist Sol LeWitt in 1981—his vision is at last being realized this summer.
With the weather we’ve been having in Philly, however, it may happen even sooner.
Sol Lewitt comes to life with plants?! Be still my beating heart! Paging MassMoCA! ~AR
