Gallery Talk: Tony Smith & the Wadsworth Atheneum: Well-known Minimalist sculptor Tony Smith had a special relationship with the Wadsworth Atheneum, which hosted his first solo exhibition in 1966. Smith’s anonymous donation to the museum in 1967 forms the core of its Abstract Expressionist collection. Explore the fruits of this important relationship with Eileen Doyle, The Marsted Curatorial Fellow for Contemporary Art.
