Sol LeWitt’s “Whirls and Twirls (MTA)”

Last week one of the last commissions taken by the late conceptual artist Sol LeWitt was unveiled at the Columbus Circle subway stop in New York. Composed of giant tiles, “Whirls and Twirls” is one of the largest done for the Arts for Transit commission. An estimated 69,000 commuters will view the work each day. LeWitt himself, though based in Connecticut, was an avid subway traveler. Lovely to see a work of such scale produced in public setting. (via NYT).
