One of my favorite artists is Robert Smithson (1938-1973), and I especially love his seminal earthwork Spiral Jetty, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, and created in 1970. The Brace Cove Sculptor created a mini-spiral jetty at the high tide line the other day, and it was fun to be reminded again of Smithson’s Spiral Jetty.
Spiral Jetty is an earthwork sculpture made from rock and earth and is located on the northern end of the Great Salt Lake. Three new guardians are working to protect and promote the Spiral Jetty, and they are Dia Art Foundation, based out of New York City, the Great Salt Lake Institute, and the Utah Museum of Fine Art.
