Spiral Jetty Review
The Spiral Jetty is a 1,500-foot-long, 15-foot-wide earthen construction that juts out into Great Salt Lake about 16 miles from the Golden Spike site via dirt road. Created by artist Robert Smithson in 1970, the jetty was submerged for much of the subsequent 30 years, before the lake level fell precipitously in 2002 revealing the structure again. Now preserved by the Dia Art Foundation, the snail shell–shaped structure is considered one of the most remote sculptures in modern American art history.
