Nancy Holt, Between Heaven and Earth

Western Gallery & Sculpture Collection, WWU, Bellingham, WA -

Part of WWU’s Sculpture Collection, is the impetus for this survey of the artist Nancy Holt (1938-2014), who installed the monumental concentric rock circles in 1978. The exhibition is trans-disciplinary, addressing her interests in geology, biology, ecology, surveying technology and astronomy. Predeceased by her husband and fellow artist Robert Smithson, she furthered their shared concerns about the planet.
