From the Editor

This month’s cover features one of the most striking transformations of a major 20th-century sculpture, the re-emergence of Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty. The work retains its original form, but years of submersion in the Great Salt Lake have changed the surface of the work dramatically. The ISC will celebrate the new visibility of Spiral Jetty with a tour of the work, co-sponsored with the Salt Lake Art Center, and the Director and Curator of Exhibitions of SLAC, Ric Collier and Jim Edwards, offer in this issue a glimpse of what we may experience on the trek and in the presence of the work. Another sculpture destination that has emerged recently is the burgeoning art scene of Beacon, New York, from the new Dia:Beacon to numerous nonprofit and commercial galleries. Jane Ingram Allen provides an overview of what is happening in Beacon, and John K. Grande profiles Roy Staab, whose work is currently on view at ecoartspace’s Beacon location. And, in case you haven’t noticed yet, Sculpture is now publishing both on paper and on the Web: this month’s Web specials include Tom Marioni’s new book and artist Manfred Müller
