In conjunction with the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, 18th Street Arts Center is proud to present resident artist Lita Albuquerque's recreation of her seminal work Spine Of The Earth. 

This large-scale art performance will take place at the breathtaking Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook in Culver City

Spine of the Earth
 was originally created on the El Mirage Dry Lake bed in the Mojave Desert of California in the fall of 1980. It was a transient pigment-based land work that commenced with a performance by Long Beach State University art students who laid red, yellow and black pigment on the desert floor. 

For Spine Of The Earth 2012, Albuquerque is re-imaging her seminal project from 1980 in an entirely new context with an innovative component of suspense that emphasizes the spectral line connecting the Earth’s core to the sky above. At 12:00 pm, over 500 people participating in this performance will reveal the surprise to spectators watching at the base of the hill with choreography by LA based choreographers Wife. Attendees to this phenomenal event are guaranteed to walk away with an unprecedented art experience.
