Robert Morris's Then vs the Now Nancy Posted Further Down

Idea for Earthworks Performance: The Beautification Project

The Uniform: close approximations of what the artists wore when creating these sculptures gleaned from old photographs.
Cleaning and restoration:
Visit Home Depot once arriving in SLC.
Buy graffiti removal, lawn care equipment, etc.
Weed & mow around earthworks (knowing full well that this is a desert and there won't be grass).
Donate all equipment to the Chinati Foundation at the end of the trip.
Mission Accomplished.
The element of domesticity combined with the masculine ideology behind these works is worthy of exploring.
