Utah is home to some of the best art in Utah. But what is magnificent is the outdoor art in Utah is that the pieces are completely unique because of the location, setting and artist.
1. Spiral Jetty
This outdoor artwork is in the Great Salt Lake. On the north end, The Spiral Jetty is spectacular. Depending on the time of the year and snow and rainfall, the lake water can be lower or higher. The Spiral Jetty looks different under high tides and low tides.
Visitors can walk out on the Jetty, play in the salt or swim in the lake. It is a far drive, but absolutely worth it. Check out our full post on The Spiral Jetty.
2. Tree of Utah
On I-80 to Wendover and before the Bonneville Salt Flats, the Tree of Utah pops up and surprises drivers. It is magnificent and beautiful, towering over the freeway. Check out our post on the Tree of Utah to find out more.
3. M0nument To Time:
This a giant sculpture of stone, steel, and wood is located between the Herriman City Library and the Herriman City Rec Center. It was created in 2010 by Israeli-born artist IIan Averbuch. The parts of the sculpture have various symbolic meanings. The stout gate suggests an entrance or a passage. The circle of stone reminds us of a clock you find in the center of old towns, a compass, or a turning wheel. This suggest time and direction. It also has a clear reference to the migration representing the pointing and growing upward and downward, but they are locked inside a constructed environment. One points to the source of gravity, the earth and the other to the heavens.
