Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty in 1970 put the modern Earth-art movement in high relief. He left his mark with a massive earthwork sculpture on the northeast edge of the Great Salt Lake. It's 15 feet wide and coils for 1,500 feet near the lake edge. Like much Earth art, Spiral Jetty is a tribute to the daring and imagination of the artist.

Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, a 1970 artwork in Utah's Great Salt Lake, is a unique blend of nature and human intervention. The spiral design, made of basalt stones and soil, changes over time due to natural forces. This reflects Smithson's interest in entropy, the process of things breaking down.
