Today we will begin looking at sculpture specifically the earthworks (or land art) and organic sculpture movements with artists such as: Andy Goldsworthy, Maya LinMel Chin, Christo and Jeanne Claude, Walter De Maria, Vik Muniz, Dennis Oppenheim, James Turrell,  and Robert Smithson

Well look at a local sculpture destinations such as Calder Court in the Smith Haven Mall and the Dia Art Foundation upstate in New York along with the Storm King Art Center which showcases works from sculptors such as: Alexander Calder, Mark di Suvero, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Richard Serra, and Louise Nevelson.

Below is a great video from Tommy Kane, a terrific artist at Storm King who had fun renaming the sculptures after popstars.
