"Double Negative" by Michael Heizer, Lost City Museum, and Valley of Fire

  • Sunday, October 5th
  • 9:15am-2:45pm, Pre-Conference Tour

$70 per person includes lunch

In a follow-up tour to last year’s amazing pre-conference trip to Spiral Jetty, participants will travel into the Nevada desert to visit Michael Heizer’s landmark piece Double Negative. Situated on top of a mesa overlooking the Virgin River, Double Negative was among the first “earthworks.” It encourages viewers to consider how the earth relates to art. After taking in Double Negative, participants will explore the Lost City Museum, where they will enjoy lunch in the garden of the 1935 pueblo-revival-style building. Exhibitions include artifacts excavated from Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) sites threatened by the waters of Lake Mead as it backed up behind the newly built Hoover Dam. On the way back to Las Vegas, the tour will drive through the dramatic Valley of Fire State Park. (Tour subject to minimums)
