Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University, in the Huckabee College of Architecture, is a transdisciplinary field program examining the evolutionary interaction between human actions and landscape formation. The program leverages immersive field experience as a primary pedagogic agent to support research that opens horizons of perception, probes depths of inquiry, and advances understanding of human impacts shaping environments. Land Arts attracts architects, artists, and writers from across the university and beyond to a “semester abroad in our own backyard” that travels 6,000 miles overland while camping for two months to experience major land art monuments—Double Negative, Spiral Jetty, Sun Tunnels, The Lightning Field—while also visiting other sites to expand understanding of what land art might be, such as pre-contact archeology, military and industrial facilities, and contemporary infrastructure. Throughout the travels and on campus, participants interact with a wide range of guests as they make work in response to their experiences, which are exhibited at the Museum of Texas Tech University to conclude the field season.

We seek applicants in all disciplines from across Texas Tech University and beyond. Curious artists, architects, writers, poets, historians, geologists, and scientists are encouraged to apply to Land Arts of the American West Graduate Certificate at Texas Tech University.

Admission into the Land Arts Graduate Certificate requires acceptance first into the Land Arts program. Then a graduate certificate application can be made with the Graduate School. Please review program admission information at and reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
