SUBMISSION:One to Forty-Nine (c. 1968) by Alexander Girard. Gift of theEstate of Xenia S. Miller to the Indianapolis Museum of Art
Missed this. Saw in person at the Miller House, just inside the front door. Totally charming, especially in a house made of squares.
In 1972, Alexander Girard’s One to Forty-Nine (MH2010.3) was being damaged by moths. Once the moths were killed, the box with feathers was treated with hair spray. Check out the note found in the Miller House and Garden Collection.
The #Indiana Arsenal, which was completed in 1867, was used until after he end of the Spanish-American War, about 1903, as the store house for artillery and other weapons. (at Arsenal Technical High School)
Robert Indiana = Nice guy. After his first one man show toured and stopped in Indianapolis in 1968, he left a signed copy of the catalogue to the public library. (at Indianapolis Marion County Public Library - Central Branch (IMCPL Central))
Nov. 29, 1971: In time for the holidays, the O of the famous “Love” sculpture, by Robert Indiana, was lowered into place — at Fifth Avenue and 60th Street — on a cold day that foreshadowed rain. Photo: Don Hogan Charles/The New York Times
