Cromlech Glen

By Beverly Pepper
Category: Miscellaneous


This earthwork Cromlech Glen can best be described as a man-made glen, or a long, narrow valley. The terrain was manipulated by earth-moving machines to form a high-walled solid basin with its floor on the natural grade of the land. Its steep walls were covered with sod, and stone steps were embedded in the earth along one end. This site-specific work was designed to be a functional space that could serve as a place for meditation, poetry readings, and small dance or musical performances.
