Visual Art Incoming!

This is some great news. New Yorkers Dorothy and Herbert Vogel are giving away their art collection not all at once, in a great big pile, to an already overstuffed New York institution, but to museums all over the country—including Seattle Art Museum.
Fifty works—mostly minimalist and conceptual works, where SAM could use a boost—are going to a selected institution in each of 50 states. (This is all possible with the help of the National Gallery of Art, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.)
Here’s what’s coming to SAM (the museum only knows specifically about four works and has a list of all the artist’s names, according to a spokeswoman):
— Stephen Antonakos’s Nov #2, 1986 (1986), colored pencil on vellum, 23 5/8 by 20 inches
— Tony Smith’s Untitled (1971), heavyweight paper, adhesive, and paint, 6 1/4 by 9 by 3 3/4 inches
— Sol LeWitt’s Untitled (1990), synthetic resin panels, adhesive, paint, and graphite, 12 by 8 3/8 by 5 1/2 inches
— Terry Winters’s Hand Line Reflection Method 15/100 (1995), ink on paper, 13 by 8 1/2 inches
And this is the artist list:
