For more than twenty years, Rice University Art Gallery has held a unique place as the only university gallery in the nation devoted to commissioning site-specific installation art. Artists early in their careers as well as artists of international reputation have constructed temporary works, each of which transformed the Gallery's signature "white box" space in a completely different way.

In spring 2017, Rice Gallery will come full circle by reinstalling one of its earliest installations, Sol LeWitt's Glossy and Flat Black Squares (Wall Drawing #813), 1997 as its closing exhibition. LeWitt (1928-2007), a leading figure in Minimalism and pioneer of Conceptual art, created the majestic work in response to Rice Gallery's architectural space. Like a musical score that exists on paper until it is played, LeWitt's Wall Drawing exists as a set of written instructions and can be re-created.
