Herbert Bayer’s grass mound (1955), a 40 foot diameter mound at the Aspen Art Institute in Colorado, is considered the first example of contemporary environmental art. “It offered a balanced community where livelihood, sports, culture and art could be pursued amidst the beauty of nature.”16

The Center for Land Use Interpretation included this work in its 2001 survey of the current status of Earthworks.
