Creative Friendship

I NEED to share this post from the Art 21 Blog. A great show about friendships between creative people is being held at the Craig F Starr gallery (they are located at 5 East 73rd Street, NYC). I love Eva Hesse, she is one of my favorite artists. Unfortunately, she died from a brain tumor when she was 34. Her and Sol LeWitt were very close friends. When I was an undergrad art student I used to read their letters to each other. It helped me understand their creative processes and I always liked what Sol LeWitt told Eva about her anxieties. I am sad that it is almost over and I will not make it to see it.
