light entertainment

Conner Contemporary announces today that The National Gallery has acquired Leo Villareal's installation, Multiverse.

The piece was installed late last year in the concourse walkway between the East and West buildings, and was scheduled to remain on view through this November.

So: Bold move to acquire contemporary work by a locally represented artist? Or simple fatigue at the thought of having to take down 41,000 individual LED lights? Let's assume it's the former.
