20 Unforgettable Examples of Land Art

Some time ago, on occasion of the  Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974, at the Museum of Contemporary Art (or MOCA) in Los Angeles, my modern met compiled a selection of their very favorite pieces of land art. You may have seen some of the works already but they surely deserve a second view. Most of these works are site specific, meaning they’re designed for a particular location. From Nils-Udo’s giant nest to Cornelia Konrads’ impossibly sculptures, they all are unforgettable examples of land art.
