Profile

When we say the world is Robert Smithson’s canvas, we mean it literally. The internationally renowned artist is most well known for Spiral Jetty (1970), a 1,500-foot-long sculpture built on the shore of the Great Salt Lake using mud, rocks and salt crystals. Smithson’s large-scale land art has had a profound impact on contemporary sculpture, particularly opening the doors for artists to explore concepts like site-specific installation. The current exhibition examines five projects Smithson proposed throughout the great state of Texas, only one of which has been fully realized.
