NEW YORK (AP) — A New York art foundation says it has acquired ownership of a concrete art installation located in Utah’s Great Basin Desert.
The Dia Art Foundation says the desert work “Sun Tunnels” was acquired from the Holt-Smithson Foundation alongside a room-sized installation “Holes of Light,” which will be exhibited in the Chelsea neighborhood this fall.

Holt-Smithson Foundation Executive Director Lisa Le Feuvre hopes the exhibition of “Holes of Light” in New York will draw visitors to the Great Basin Desert.
Dia Art Foundation serves as a steward for multiple site-specific art installations across the world.
