While the UMFA is temporarily closed, we’re bringing our popular Third Saturday for Families art-making activity to you.
Happy Birthday, Spiral Jetty!
This month we’re celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty—the iconic work of Land art located in the north arm of Great Salt Lake—by helping you make your own field guide. The UMFA has lots of art in its collection to help you understand and be inspired by this fascinating artwork. First, look at these two very different art objects, both of which have a connection to Spiral Jetty.
