The second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Indianapolis Museum of Art conservator Richard McCoy talking about the International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art-North America’s Tony Smith Artist Research Project. 
McCoy and his colleagues have created project on which they’re trying to use Wikipedia to document all 83 of Smith’s outdoor sculptures, making pictures, available technical documentation and information about the works publicly available, and for free. Anyone may contribute an entry on one of Smith’s outdoor works, so check out the list of outdoor Smiths to see if there’s one near you! (Bonus: If you complete an entry, INCCA-NA will send you this kick-ass t-shirt as a thank-you.)
This is the cover of the October 13, 1967 issue of Time magazine featuring a plywood version of Smith’s Smoke at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. One edition of the piece — made out of painted aluminum — is now in the collection (and installed at) the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Flickr users have taken a lot of great pictures of it!
