Absolutely ridiculous that state land and time is wasted on this
@Go Big Blue, You are thinking of the Tree of Utah, which is a different work of
art. To see the Spiral Jetty you either have to be in a plane or take a
four-wheeler to the end of Promontory Point.
This man made eye sore should be dismantled and removed. So the area can be
returned to it's natural wilderness state. "A wilderness, in
contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is
hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are
untrammelled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain"
I have to take issue with the reporter. The Spiral Jetty is not a rock
formation. It is man made with a bull dozer. I for one would be in favor of
bulldozing it out of existance. The two most insignificant pieces of
"art" in Utah are the Spiral Jetty and the so called "Tree of
Utah". Both wastes of time and space.
"One of the most significant pieces of American art"? While I find it amusing to see on the way to Wendover I find it difficult to
take serious. If this is one of our most significant works of art our country
must not be very artistic.
