Hikmet Sidney Loe | The Spiral Jetty Encyclo

Join author Hikmet Sidney Loe for a discussion and signing of her new book, The Spiral Jetty Encyclo: Exploring Robert Smithson's Earthwork Through Time and Place, as part of the Utah Guest Writers series. 

Since 1970 Robert Smithson's earthwork Spiral Jetty has been a notable feature of the landscape and lakescape of the Great Salt Lake Valley. As more residents of the Wasatch Front have become aware of the artwork, especially since its initial reemergence in 1993 after a twenty-year long submersion in the lake, it has become a destination site for increasing numbers of day- trippers. It is also one of the most internationally famous art pieces of the late twentieth century, widely considered a central icon of the land art movement. This book covers the previously little-explored range of topics Smithson had in mind as he worked.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of The Spiral Jetty Encyclo from The King's English.
