Earlier this year I had a special encounter with some Sol Lewitts at SFMOMA. Now I'm obsessed with the tumblr blog the Albright-Knox is running as they install the largest-ever Sol Lewitt wall drawing:

A crew of fifteen people, expected to work for a total of 5,000 hours, is installing a commissioned graphite drawing made up of millions of scribble marks of varying density. The drawing will cover 2,200 square feet of wall surface surrounding the staircase that connects the 1962 Knox building and the 1905 Albright building.

The drawing is underway now, and expected to be completed in mid October. As well as inviting people in to watch the drawing happen, the Albright-Knox is documenting the progress online, with photos, videos and observations from staff mixed in to links to media coverage and quotes from LeWitt. It's addictive.
