About: Art patrons Dorothy and Herbert Vogel often collected preparatory drawings for projects. Though never realized, High Red Neon from Wall to Wall proposes hanging a red neon line between two nine foot high walls at a height of five and a half feet—the artist’s response to the physical parameters of a gallery space.
