Want to know a bit more about Robert Indiana’s “Numbers” sculptures, which he created in 1980 and have been made into editions around the world? Check out this short article I wrote for Sky Blue Window.
There’s a set currently on view in London with the “LOVE” sculpture.

Huge congrats to Richard McCoy on the opening of his exhibition Indiana by the Numbers at the IMA. More conservators should curate shows. Especially if you’re as brilliant as my colleague Richard. It’s been an extreme pleasure collaborating with him over the past 5 years.
About the best review I could get: a note from Sarah Green, a curator that I respect a lot.

Lessons in photography through the lens of conservation.
The IMA Blog has a number of good posts about photographs and their preservation. These posts were written to highlight the work being done there as part of the award of a prestigious IMLS grant to survey and study the entire collection. Below are links to the posts.

Cool to see my friends in the IMA Archives making this list for the hard work on the Miller House & Garden collection!
