About the Author

ohn Beardsley, who lives near Washington, D.C., is an independent scholar, curator, and writer whose other books include Gardens of Revelation: Environments by Visionary Artists as well as the coauthored Black Folk Art in America, 1930-1980 and Hispanic Art in the United States. He has taught in landscape architecture programs at the University of Virginia, Harvard, and the University of Pennsylvania.


This thoughtful volume is very well illustrated and provides a context for understanding the achievements of a highly diverse range of artistic endeavor... Highly recommended. -- Artforum John Beardsley is a superb guide to this burgeoning and sometimes baffling branch of the art world... His observations have a polished simplicity and he fortifies his narrative with details that have eluded other writers... Beardsley offers the best account of the earthworks movement yet published. -- Landscape Architecture Indispensable... By the time one reads the last chapter, "The Greening of Sculpture," one sees that the ancient role of artists as technologists and innovators has reopened in the relatively new tradition of earthworks and public sculpture... The complex field of contemporary site-specific sculpture gains clarity with the categories Beardsley outlines... Beardsleys' analysis is unpretentious, clear-eyed, and open. -- Rain Taxi Review of Books; Fall, 2006
