Dennis Oppenheim's Alternative Land Art

Staff Pick

Since May, it’s been easy to count yourself fortunate if you get stuck in traffic on Peachtree Street in front of the Savannah College of Art and Design. Atlanta motorists who are typically deprived of contemporary art could view the internationally known New York conceptualist and land artist DENNIS OPPENHEIM’S ALTERNATIVE LAND ART. The exhibition, a forest of “trash” on the front lawn of SCAD, seems to offer an environmental commentary on a landscape that may soon be composed of nothing but human-made vistas. Combined with the High Museum’s Alexander Calder and Auguste Rodin farther up the road, it’s a veritable windshield tour.
