Couldn't be happier that the last project I get to work on with IMA folks is an exhibit on Robert Indiana's "Numbers". Check out the exhibit this Friday.
The new exhibition Indiana by the Numbers opens this Friday, May 24) and traces the history of Robert Indiana's iconic works.

Hey amigos, do you want a limited edition Tony Smith t-shirt (cute boy not included)? Read the article I just posted on Art21 about it. Let me know if you have any questions. 

Please help share this project ... I'd really like to have all of Tony Smith's artworks documented by the end of 2013!

Koven, you're a star! I'm envious of the video, looks like everyone had fun making it, and a nice balance of deep thought and irreverence. Well done.
