Yesterday the Landslide 2014: Art and the Landscape, The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s 2014 list of at-risk and threatened site was launched. The list included 11 examples " of land-based art from ancient petroglyphs to earthworks, folk art creations, single artist, multi-acre installations and others threatened with demolition, neglect, poor maintenance, vandalism and lack of funding." On the list was Dallas artist's Frances Bagley and Tom Orr's White Rock Wildlife Water Theater. I was thrilled to be commissioned by The Cultural Landscape Foundation to document the conditions of the theater to help bring attention to these at-risk sites. Read and see more here.
