Anne Truitt was many things -- a sculptor, author, professor and mother -- and above all, it seems, she was beloved by her students and friends for her spirit, integrity and seriousness of purpose. 'Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection,' the first major retrospective of Truitt's work, was on exhibition in 2009 at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Gallery and Sculpture Garden. I wrote, produced and edited this video and report, having spoken with Hirshhorn curator Kristen Hileman; Tim Gunn, chief creative officer of Liz Claiborne, co-host of Project Runway and former Truitt student; and filmmaker and photographer Jem Cohen about Truitt's life and work.
