Sol LeWitt dead at 78

Not sure if anyone has read the news yet but conceptual giant Sol LeWitt has passed after a battle with cancer.
The modest artist, an innovator in minimalism and conceptual art, eschewed fame and celebrity.

"He never felt that art has to do with the personality of the person who made it," says Andrea Miller-Keller, former curator of contemporary art at Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum and a longtime friend and collaborator who is regarded as a foremost interpreter of his work. "It's not about the star power but about the art."
