Land art and contemporary art
in the American West

This summer join Artful on a journey across three cities in the American Southwest, to discover iconic and brand-new works of land art. The journey begins in Salt Lake City, where works like Nancy Holt's Sun Tunnels and Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty transform the stark desert landscapes. In Denver, we go behind-the-scenes of the thriving local art scene with studio and museum visits and dine at Potager, the city's first farm-to-table restaurant. Artful brings you through the Rocky Mountains and into Santa Fe, where new experiences like Meow Wolf and Charles Ross's Star Axis are on the cutting edge of the art world.

Book your desert pilgrimage with Artful this summer and explore art that defines the West.

Our Land Art Jaunt is estimated at $7,500 per person and includes all transportation, lodging, and meals during your trip. Our trips do not include flights to or from your destination.
