Using materials like earth, wind, water, fire, wood, salt, rocks, mirrors, and explosives, American artists of the 1960s began to move beyond the white cube gallery space to work directly in the land. Groundswell: Women of Land Art, intends to shift the focus, which has mostly been on men artists, to shed new light on the vast number of Land works by women artists, whose careers ran parallel to their better-known male counterparts, yet have received less recognition and representation in museum presentations. On the occasion of the exhibition, a two-day symposium will take place.  It includes a scholarly presentation of significant themes explored by women in the Land art movement and a roundtable discussion on perspectives from featured artists in the exhibition on the first day. Day two explores the relationship between Land art and public art, with a special focus on Patricia Johanson's Fair Park Lagoon (1981-86).
