This event series invited artists and community members to look closely at The Pulitzer Foundation’s current exhibition, “Donald Judd: The Multicolored Works”; collect household materials to create their own Judd-like objects; and then exhibit their hand-made Judds at beverly, fort gondo compound for the arts’ new project space.

Riffing off the seminal 1972 book by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott-Brown, “Learning from Las Vegas,” which found high theory in vernacular forms, this event series inverts this premise and invites vernacular materials (shoeboxes, scrap wood, poster paint, etc.) to assume high form (Judd’s objects). As Donald Judd’s work visually lends itself to tactility and play, this open collaboration literally realizes that potential.
