It's summer in beautiful New Jersey! This month, we're sharing stories about artists who work in the great outdoors.
Artist Robert Smithson, born and raised in New Jersey, is best known for his signature “Earthworks”—large-scale works of art that he made in Italy, Holland, and throughout North America from 1969 until his death in 1973. His Spiral Jetty, an icon of 20th century art history, was built out from the shore of Utah’s Great Salt Lake in 1970. Pictured here is his Floating Island to Travel Around Manhattan Island.
