Earth Art Gallery


Earth Art with a capital "A" is a formal art movement (which I talk more about elsewhere). This gallery is more diffuse than that. It may seem odd to present art on a science site, but the geologist who ignores the cultural side of Earth is doubly handicapped—first, he or she engages less of the mind in thinking about geology; second, he or she has trouble hearing and addressing the perceptions and concerns of laypeople, whether they are neighbors at home or traditional peoples inhabiting a field area. Everyone has opinions about Earth and its rocks and landforms. Here are some.
