Exploring Utah's Land Art: Discussions on Spiral Jetty (1970) and Sun Tunnels (1973-76)
Lifelong Learning

The Land Art movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s found artists exploring and employing outdoor landscapes to create art. These works are often made from natural materials on-site and rely on their location to make them integral and unique. Utah has two of the most world-renowned works of Land Art: Spiral Jetty (1970) by artist Robert Smithson, and Sun Tunnels (1973-76) by artist Nancy Holt. This course is offered in three parts. The first evening we will explore the key elements of Land Art and the many reasons artists turned to this form of expression. The second evening is devoted to Spiral Jetty, with an introduction to Sun Tunnels. On the third and final evening, we will discuss Sun Tunnels and its orientation to the summer and winter solstices; this class will take place after the summer solstice.
