About the Author

Hikmet Sidney Loe teaches art history at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. Her work examines the changeable nature of the earth and addresses our perceptual and cultural constructs of the land. She frequently lectures and publishes on topics related to Utah's earthworks.


"A useful reference that could well provide hours of free-form exploration of Smithson's work.... Those readers who immerse themselves in these pages will come to appreciate Spiral Jetty as a multi-faceted work of conceptual art. Moreover, readers will find sparkling nuggets of information regarding the Great Salt Lake itself, the childhood encounters with natural history that informed Smith's work, the relationship between Spiral Jetty and his oeuvre, his dialogue with the environmental movement, and his efforts to use art to reclaim land disturbed by industrial processes."
--Utah Historical Quarterly

"An important book that makes key contributions to the literature on earthworks, Robert Smithson, and the Spiral Jetty. Its innovative format brings abundant new research to light in a fluid and flexible way."
--Jennifer L. Roberts, author of Mirror-Travels: Robert Smithson and History

"Few authors are better qualified than Loe, who provides a richly faceted image of one of the key artworks of the twentieth century. Whoever takes the book in hand will be motivated to go visit The Spiral Jetty."
--Philip Ursprung, author of Allan Kaprow, Robert Smithson, and the Limits to Art
"Loe is gifted in her ability to succinctly present a broad survey of information that will interest readers at high school to adult aficionado levels."
--Frank McEntire, art critic and author of Final Light: The Life and Art of V. Douglas Snow
