It is also called "Land Art" and "Enviormental Art"
The landscape and the work of art are inextricably intertwined!
In other words, the art is a part of the land and the land is a part of the art. Earth Art By Jeni,Tyler,Marshall and Andrew
Group #4 Origins The Earth Art, or Land Art, Movement was born in the late 1960′s in the United States in response to the over-commercialization of art and the rising trend towards environmentalism.

Founders of the movement were disgruntled by the plasticity and artificiality of art. They wanted to get people out of museums and back into nature.. How is Earth Art Made?! MUD!! SAND Minerals! Plants! Dark Star Park Important People Richard Smithson- Most well Known earth Artist Walter De Maria,
