This show is a selection of 68 large-scale photographs of Andrew Rogers' ground-breaking outdoor land art project. The exhibition will showcase aerial and satellite photographs of 47 sculptures created over a period of 13 years, marking it the first time these images will be publicly displayed together and the first exhibition devoted to the entire Rhythms of Life project.Also on view will be a looped, 40-minute film that documents the artist’s extraordinary process. Rogers has spent the last 13 years engaging over 6,700 people in 13 countries on seven continents to create stone sculptures in deserts, fjords, gorges, national parks and on mountainous slopes.  He often works for months on end, engaging hundreds of local workers and even a thousand Maasai Warriors to help him erect his visionary installations.

 By building structures with local significance, and providing sustaining support to maintain the mammoth artworks, Rogers engages the communities where his works are created. Following each project’s completion, Rogers photographs the work himself either from a hot air balloon, a helicopter 500 feet aloft or from a satellite stationed 480 miles above ground. The opening reception is Saturday, May 7, 6pm-8pm
