Who was Sol LeWitt?

Solomon "Sol" LeWitt was an American artist and native of Connecticut. 

His art career took off in the 1960s and he played a leading role in introducing art to the Coneceptual movement, which led to the transition from the modern to the postmodern era. 

LeWitt's work ranged from sculptures, to paintings, and even drawings, many of which are wall drawings or murals. 

Several pieces of his artwork can be found in the library. One example, Double Pyramid #8 was obtained on February 2, 1994, according to Renae Karas from the  CCSU Facilities Department.

You can find out more about the artist by searching the library's reference databases such as Biography Reference Center and Credo Reference.
