Today on Modern Art Notes: Last night the Baltimore Museum of Art’s board of trustees approved the commission of a major, permanently installed Sarah Oppenheimer for the BMA’s West Wing for Contemporary Art galleries. The museum is currently renovating its contemporary spaces as part of a $24 million project that will also include the remodeling of its American and African galleries. The museum expects to debut the Oppenheimer when it re-opens its contemporary wing in spring 2012.
The Oppenheimer will likely include a wall-cut near the Dan Flavin pictured here, Untitled (To Barnett Newman for “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf”) (1993-94), and will reflect its light to a different part of the museum.
