New York art foundation acquires art located in Utah desert

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.
