08/25/2009 Modern Art: Monumental Work

I would love to see Michael Heizer's City in my lifetime. From what little that's leaked out, it seems like no other work I know. While very few images are available, and he'd really rather not want you on his land (as these art-tourists found), there's a satellite image, there's a good profile from the New York Times, and some other images have shown up here. During the reign of Bush and Cheney, City's site came under threat from the proposed rail link to carry radioactive waste to Yucca Mountain, but the economic downturn may have saved it, with the Yucca Mountain project being scaled back.
