During the AMAM renovation project, a wall drawing by Sol LeWitt was crated in place to protect temporarily. This video shows the scribble drawing being uncovered in preparation for the September 6 reopening of the museum.

To make this drawing, eleven people worked the equivalent of 101 draftsman days to cover the wall's 396 square feet with graphite. A total of 330 six-inch leads and twenty-eight woodless graphite pencil sticks were used.
