LeWitt painting falls at National Gallery in DC
Saturday - 2/16/2013, 12:20pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A large Sol LeWitt painting has fallen from the spot it's occupied at the National Gallery of Art for the last 20 years.
The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/12qZSg5) that the installation, titled "Wall Drawing No. 681 C," was being removed Saturday from the National Gallery's East Building after it fell from its wall perch a day earlier. It's now headed for storage. A group of visiting students rushed over to try to push up the falling installation, which measures 10 feet by 37 feet.
The artwork has been in the same spot for 20 years, even though National Gallery spokeswoman Deborah Ziska says it was only meant to be temporary.
It's not clear exactly why the painting fell. It's the first time it's happened at the National Gallery.
