Nancy Holt Memorial | Sun Tunnels (06/2014)

“Nancy Holt Memorial at Sun Tunnels”
June 21, 2014 (19-22:00 pm) 
An invitation by:
Hikmet S. Loe, Tom Martinelli and Matthew Coolidge

Join us to celebrate the life and work of Nancy Holt (1938-2014) at her sculpture Sun Tunnels, in the Utah desert, on this Summer Solstice, June 21, 2014. 

This is an informal memorial and celebration, open to the public, with no scheduled events - other than the sunset lining up in the tunnels, around 8:30 p.m.
We are encouraging people to come on their own, being prepared for high desert conditions: remote, waterless, treeless, hot, cold, and spectacular.

As Nancy said in a 1998 interview, "Sun Tunnels brings people to a site they would not have gone to otherwise, even the local people there don't go out to this particular area. They were amazed that I would find anything special about it, that I would want to spend time there and build a sculpture there. As soon as Sun Tunnels was finished, I had a summer solstice celebration."
