Carmen Einfinger executes a Public Art Intervention at the Great Salt Lake
Ms. Einfinger's “Color Homage to Robert Smithson” was inspired by her longstanding respect for Smithson's pioneering work in Land Art, or Earthworks. Her work was created to acknowledge his enormous contribution which influences today’s public artists worldwide. Ms. Einfinger predicts that Smithson’s Spiral Jetty will continue to impact artists in future generations to think bigger.


SALT LAKE CITY, UT.- On February 2, 2016, New York City artist Carmen Einfinger executed a Public Art Intervention at Robert Smithson's iconic Spiral Jetty at the Great Salt Lake in Utah, titled “Color Homage to Robert Smithson.”

Ms. Einfinger's “Color Homage to Robert Smithson” was inspired by her longstanding respect for Smithson's pioneering work in Land Art, or Earthworks. Her work was created to acknowledge his enormous contribution which influences today’s public artists worldwide. Ms. Einfinger predicts that Smithson’s Spiral Jetty will continue to impact artists in future generations to think bigger.

Einfinger’s art intervention is timely, as a new generation of artists is supporting the Spiral Jetty to be named Utah’s “state work of art.” Over the years, the Spiral Jetty has been studied, written about, and reviewed as a ground-breaking, highly influential work of Land Art. It is long overdue that Robert Smithson be honored by the current proposal that the Spiral Jetty be designated the Utah “state work of art”.

Carmen Einfinger is a frequent visitor to Utah, maintaining ties with family and friends in the state. Her interest in creating this installation was also fueled by concern over climate change around the world and a desire to make a contribution to public awareness.

The artist addressed the topic of Public Art and the environment in a live interview during the intervention. A film of the art intervention and interview, as well as high resolution photos, will be available to galleries, museums, environmental groups, and select media.

Einfinger's paintings reside in private collections, galleries and museums throughout the world. Her work has evolved in the last five years to include Public Art Installations and Interventions in Europe, Asia, and New York City. She won first prize in the International Competition of the Outdoor Gallery of the City of Gdansk, Poland. She was awarded an Andrew Mellon Fellowship at Brown University and artist residencies in Beijing, China, Lubeck, Germany, and Blue Mountain, NY.
