Celebrating the Spiral Jetty
March 31 - April 30
Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty (1970) is a monumental work of Land art and a twentieth-century masterpiece. People travel from around the world to see it, but those of us who live nearby have a unique relationship to it. This year marks the artwork’s fiftieth birthday, and the UMFA is honoring our community’s special connection by collecting your stories from throughout the years to reflect on the many ways that visitors have interacted with the artwork.
The UMFA has also prepared several exhibitions about Land art to commemorate this iconic work. An exhibition interactive in 50 Years of Spiral Jetty | Smithson and Gorgoni asks visitors to share their thoughts regarding Spiral Jetty as it relates to the passing of time.
While the Museum has had to temporarily close our doors, we are always looking for ways to connect you to great art. Find more opportunities to share art experiences on our Instagram.
