Top Ten Reasons to see the Loops
Today as I drove to work, I was in a David Letterman frame of mind, I guess. I started to think of our current show, and just listing, Letterman-style, the reasons to come and see it. Sure, every art dealer wants you to come see their show—and buy something. But this is a truly unprecedented exhibit: none of the Loops are for sale. We just want people to see them. So here’s my list of the top ten reasons to see the Loops, done in true Letterman fashion, reverse order:
10. They are 41 years old.
8. See them and watch them change with the light during the day.
7. See a museum quality show that anticipates next year’s Pacific Standard Time initiative.
6. Marvel at an exhibition that a Getty Conservation Institute researcher called “a real pleasure…magnificent”.
5. See works by an artist that Ed Moses calls “a genius”.
4. Understand why yesterday’s Getty Research Institute Senior Associate called the show “historic”.
3. Marvel at the sequencing of the pieces within the gallery space.
2. See the phenomenal reflections of atmospheric color on the wall.
1. Experience a visual feast of pure sensual color.
