Sadly, the amazing Maya Lin exhibition, A History of Water, closed at Orlando Museum of Art Sunday. We were so impressed with this show, the first major Maya Lin exhibition in Florida and the first show to take over every gallery at OMA, that we covered it with not one but three overlapping reviews back in March.

The centerpiece of A History of Water was the room-size "2 x 4 Landscape," an undulating waveform built of thousands of individual lumber studs. The overwhelming first impression that "2 x 4" makes ultimately gives way to a curiosity about its construction – a curiosity OMA satisfied today with a series of photos of the piece's de-installation.

Check out a few frames from this look behind the OMA scenes (see more at their Facebook page), and rev up your anticipation for OMA's next major show — the second installation of the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art
