Mark Hewitt’s pots might have left the Nasher Museum, but they’ve made a permanent mark on the space — at least for anyone using Google Earth. In the (flattened) image above from July 2010, you can see the placement of the pots in that semicircle adjacent to the patio.

In Google Earth’s latest update, you can also use their timeline feature which allows you to see a site over its history. You can see the Nasher during its construction and even when it was a bare plot of earth as early as 1993.

And even in the absence of the pots, you can read about Hewitt who was recently profiled on the New York Review of Books blog.
