On September 24, I explained the State of Connecticut's program to fund new public murals in eight cities. New Britain's mural is on a building near the intersection of Main Street and Columbus Boulevard. In addition to state funding, the New Britain Museum of American Art and the estate of the artist, Sol Lewitt, contributed financial support.
Lewitt moved to New Britain as a child, attended New Britain schools and was loyal to his home town throughout his life. He became one of the most prominent American artists of the 20th century. This mural is Wall Drawing #1105, "Colored bands of arcs from four corners." I have shown Sol Lewitt wall paintings at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford here and here. There will be more . . .
