Annual Celebration of Nancy Holt’s Time Span

Land art pioneer Nancy Holt framed the landscape with her site-specific sculptures. Come see how, for one moment each year, the steel wheel of her 1981 sculpture Time Span casts a shadow around a plaque in the earth inscribed with the day’s date, also the artist’s birth date. Then enjoy refreshments in the Driscoll Villa.
