A Massive Sol LeWitt Triptych Enlivens an Austere Manhattan Lobby

Office tower lobbies stow some of Manhattan’s most under-appreciated artistic gems—and a dazzling new Sol LeWitt triptych is joining the ranks. Bars of Color Within Squares now adds a welcome splash of color to the shimmering triple-height lobby of 425 Park Avenue, a new skyscraper designed by Foster + Partners at 56th Street. L&L, the building’s developers, procured the piece from Paula Cooper Gallery, which carefully followed meticulous installation instructions the artist left right before he died, in 2007. The artwork is in good company: Yayoi Kusama’s immersive Narcissus Garden, first shown at the Italian Pavilion at the 33rd Venice Biennale in 1966, also resides in the building. —Ryan Waddoups
