Summary: This invaluable volume now includes the most recent and most interesting efforts by artists--often in collaboration with architects and city planners--to transform ravaged landscapes and desolate cityscapes into pleasure-giving parks and artworks. After an enlightening introduction tracing the historical roots of art in the landscape, the opening chapter deals with such innovative artists as Robert Smithson, Nancy Holt, and Christo, who in the 1960s began to free their art from the c moreonfines of tradition by constructing monumental sculptures in the environment. The following chapters discuss their predecessors, peers, and successors, including Constantin Brancusi, James Turrell, and many others. The final three chapters explore the increasing involvement of artists in land reclamation and urban design, featuring projects by Mel Chin, Maya Lin, Martin Puryear, and others. ''The best account of the earthworks movement yet published.'' less
