Modern Desert Markings: Artist Symposium

June 2023

The team from Modern Desert Markings took us behind the scenes of the exhibition. Artists who were commissioned to create new work in response to five historic Land Art sites in Southern Nevada discuss their site visits to the locations of these important artworks as well as their thoughts on Land Art and preservation.

A video of the symposium is available on our YouTube channel and can be viewed here.
