Lindsay Aveilhé, Research Associate for the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonné, helped organize an installation of Wall Drawing #84 at The Artist's Institute on November 20, 2013. In order to install the work, "a drafter uses every single color from the original Crayola 12-pack — Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Black, White, Brown, Carnation Pink, Indigo, Gray — and wears down the crayons in their entirety to form a dense twelve-inch square." John Hogan, senior draftsperson and Mary Jo and Ted Shen Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Installation Director and Archivist, Yale University Art Gallery, led the installation with the help of graduate students from the Hunter College Art Department and staff members of Artifex Press. Below are some photographs illustrating the installation in process.
