What can small, everyday objects tell us about time and the places they came from? Join Dia artist educator Alisa Besher to explore the works of Robert Smithson, Michael Heizer, and Michelle Stuart in this hands-on tour. It will focus on the journey that rocks and minerals make once removed from quarries, considering the biggest boulders to the smallest specks of sand. Perfect for families with children of all ages. (1 hour)
