A few months ago Mary Temple kindly invited me to add a post to the Artists on Diaries blog at the Archives of American Art. In concert with the show A Day in the Life: Artists’ Diaries from the Archives of American Art, Mary has been collecting essays from artists and writers. Though not explicitly a diary, I have long felt that Sol LeWitt’s postcards served as correspondence and a diary and sketchbook. I argue the point here in Sol LeWitt’s Postcards. I am proud to have been able to write this piece and I hope you will click through and read it.
I want to thank Janet Passehl, John Lavertu and Sofia LeWitt from the The LeWitt Collection/ Estate for their assistance and permission as well as Elizabeth Botten at the Archives of American Art. A huge thanks to Mary Temple for her invitation, inclusion and support.
