    Absolutely ridiculous that state land and time is wasted on this "art."

    @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.

    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.
