The Spiral Jetty was created from mud, earth and rock that was formed into a 15 foot wide and 1,500 foot long spiral which extend out into the waters along the northeastern shore of the Great Salt lake. It seems like the artwork has been under water for most of my life, because it was made in 1970 when Utah was going through a drought. But the Spiral Jetty occasionally surfaces above the water. I can’t remember exactly what year it was, but I did make it out to the artwork sometime in the early 2000s. I believe you’d be able to see it now, because the water is low enough again.
Starting March 10th, and running through June 3rd, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts will be featuring the work of 23 artists and artist collaboratives whose work has been influenced by Robert Smithson and his ideas.
