Michael Heizer

Michael Heizer is a contemporary artist who began his work in New York City, but soon left for the deserts of California and Nevada. Heizer's work is often created at such a large scale that it is unable to fit in any museum. Heizer began working on City in the early 1990's and has been an ongoing project ever since. Located in Nevada, it is one of the largest sculptures created at 1.25 miles long and .25 miles wide. City was inspired by ancient monuments and minimalism, and is being built using earth material, rocks, and concrete. City is scheduled to be completed sometime this year.
