Image: Courtesy Google Cultural Institute Impermanent Sand Paintings by Andres Amador San Francisco-area landscape artist Andreas Amador etches massive sand drawings onto beaches during full moons when his canvas reaches its largest potential. Using only a rake and often several helpers the geometric and organic shapes are slowly carved into the sand, often interacting with the physical topography like the stones in a zen garden. The works exist for only a few moments, just long enough to snap a few photographs before being completely engulfed by the encroaching tide.

10 facts you should know about Vincent van Gogh 10 facts (and a video) on the prolific genius who died a relatively unknown artist. 1.

ENDS OF THE EARTH: LAND ART TO 1974 Developed by MOCA for Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974, this interactive feature maps key artworks included in the exhibition, pinpointing their original locations to demonstrate the global nature of Land art and its relationship to real places and times. Click on an artist’s name to begin. Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974 is the first large-scale, historical-thematic exhibition to deal broadly with Land art, capturing the simultaneous impulse emergent in the 1960s to use the earth as an artistic medium and to locate works in remote sites far from familiar art contexts. Organized by MOCA Senior Curator Philipp Kaiser and co-curator Miwon Kwon, Professor of Art History at UCLA, the exhibition highlights the early years of untested artistic experimentations and concludes in the mid-1970s before Land art becomes a fully institutionalized category. Major support is provided by Barbara Kruger and L&M Arts, LA. The exhibition is also made possible by Kathi and Gary Cypres.

(Provided by Christo | via AP) Christo's Over The River project, which calls for draping huge fabric panels from cables over parts of the Arkansas River, will be carefully scrutinized for its potential impact on traffic on U.S. 50 — just like any other huge project, Colorado Department of Transportation officials said today. The $50 million art installation is being attacked by a group from Cañon City as being dangerous, especially to anyone living near the headwaters of the Arkansas River and in Bighorn Sheep Canyon.

Egyptian Desert Sand Spiral In the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea stands Desert Breath, a stunning land-art project comprised of perfectly-formed cones and a glistening pool of water. Nestled between the hills on the Egyptian desert floor, this site-specific installation was the work of D.A.ST. Arteam, made up of Danae Stratou (installation artist), Alexandra Stratou (industrial designer and architect), and Stella Constantindies (architect). They spent from 1995 to 1997 working on Desert Breath, relocating 8,000 square meters of sand to create what we see here.
