The Lawn Drawings are a set of site-specific installations designed for the rolling green lawns of the Getty Center’s Central Garden. Utilizing brightly-colored lines that fluoresced at night, Cunningham performed the installation throughout the course of a day on Oct 14, 2017. Vieweres were allowed to menader around the artwoks throughout the evening and the artworks were deinstallated the following day. The two horizontal composition hover between two and three dimensions and echo the poetic forms of geometric abstraction created by avant-garde painters and sculptors who were the subject of the exhibition Making Art Concrete: Works from Argentina and Brazil in the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.
