An opening reception will take place from 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 1, 2011, at the LHUCA Warehouses at 1001 Mac Davis Lane in Lubbock, Texas.
The exhibition culminates the semester-long interdisciplinary field program Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech in the College of Architecture and presents documents, objects and constructions by students Cynthia Gabaldon, Gregory Hemmelgarn, Rocio Mendoza, Corinne Sutton, Sunny Tang, Bradley Wilson, with art history graduate student Jennie Lamensdorf from the University of Texas at Austin. Chris Taylor, director of Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech, leads the program and was assisted in the field by Texas Tech alumni Sean Cox. Land Arts 2010 field season was made possible with generous operational support from Andrea Nasher and student support from the James Family Foundation.
Students traveled 7,000 miles visiting locations across the Southwest camping for two months as they explored natural and human forces that shape contemporary landscapes—ranging from geology and weather to cigarette butts and hydroelectric dams.
