Marketing Intern Will encountered an interesting friend during his time spent in the Sol LeWitt galleries…
The other day as I was wandering through the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawing Exhibition, as I occasionally do to relax and take a little break from my normal intern duties, I noticed something alarming and peculiar. SOMETHING WAS ON ONE OF THE WALL DRAWINGS! Oh no, had someone kicked the wall leaving a little blob of mud? Had someone started to fill in Sol’s grid? Then suddenly the blob moved! What could this be?
As I got closer I noticed that it wasn’t mud or any kind of disfigurement but a tiny, itsy, bitsy, little spider. It was really kind of cute. He was just sitting there at the base of this MASSIVE (compared to his size) wall, slowly making his way upwards. It made me wonder if this Wall Drawing (#47), with its grid-like network of intersecting lines, looked like a gigantic spider web and my little friend was clinging on exploring what it had to offer him. It even looked like he was climbing up one single line or thread in his web!
I snapped of a few pictures to document his existence and amazingly silly paralleled efforts to his children’s story counterpart and let him be. Good luck little guy, just please don’t squirt any fly or bug guts on our walls!
