anne truitt: luminosities at delaware art museum
15 October 2011
Drawn primarily from the Museum's permanent collection, this exhibition features sculpture and works on paper by the artist Anne Truitt. Most closely aligned with Minimalism and the Washington, D.C.-based Color Field painters, the artist is considered an important figure of American abstraction and was the subject of a major exhibition in 2009 at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. Truitt's work explores the subtleties of light and color through abstract two- and three-dimensional forms and the artist's desire to make light "visible for its own sake."
