Old Couples Look Alike

Marketing Intern Will is at it again with this blog about a few awesome comparisons he’s noticed recently…

Now I would hardly call the relationship between our Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings and our factory Building 7 old, but they have been dating for a year now, something has to be said for that. In our modern world relationships are tough and staying together for a year or more is a big deal! I’m sure the drawings and the building have their little nothing fights, the walls complaining that “Its too cold in here we need insulated windows!” or “Pull down the blinds! That blaring sun hurts me!” while the building retorts “Why should I? You never do anything around here. All you do is sit around all day in the same spot!” But regardless of these little qualms I know that they have a strong relationship; one that will go the distance, that is longer than any relationship Buildings 4 and 5 have ever had with a work of art.

As I have been giving tours of the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing Retrospective, I have been noticing a few peculiarities within Building 7 that weren’t apparent the first time I walked through and have only become noticeable after some time. What I have come to notice is that the walls of Building 7, in certain places, look a lot like some of the Wall Drawings on exhibit. Pretty crazy, I know, but take a look at these comparisons and I’m sure you’ll be convinced too:

Pretty crazy huh!? I can’t decide if it is actually like the saying “Old Couples Look Alike” or if the guys who renovated Building 7 or executed the Wall Drawings were all playing tricks on us by leaving the walls with these patterns. I’d really like to know. So next time you come around to North Adams be sure to stop by and check Building 7 and Sol LeWitt out for yourself and let me know if you can see it or if I’m just going a little crazy.
