12th Copper Corner Safe!

posted by on August 22 at 9:48 AM

Remember the Carl Andre sculpture I posted about a couple of months ago that was, according to the artist, “RESCUED FROM MUTILATION AT THE WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART”?

Well, now this victim of institutional abuse has come to rest at the Seattle Art Museum (thanks to rescuers Virginia and Bagley Wright). 12th Copper Corner is one of many artworks in SAM’s latest round of acquisitions, which the museum made public this week. Other highlights include works by Marcel Broodthaers, Victor Vasarely, Man Ray, Walter Oltmann, and Seattle artists Gretchen Bennett, Eli Hansen and Oscar Tuazon.
