Last winter as the Whitney Biennial got under way sculptor Larry Bell found the museum’s fifth floor deck a fine place for his large-scale piece, “Pacific Red”. The series of six massive glass red cubes with smaller cubes inside was visible from his room at the nearby Standard Hotel where he stayed during the installation last March. Even better, “Pacific Red” was visible from the Empire State Building.
