Robert Chianese Begins Writing For ‘American Scientist’

Chianese, a former professor, has become an invited columnist for the “American Scientist,” writing about relationships among the humanities, arts and sciences. Chianese’s initial essays constitute a series of evaluations of just how ecologically “green” some iconic works of Earth Art actually are. The title for the series is “How Green Is Earth Art?” and the first essay, focusing on Robert Smithson’s “Spiral Jetty,” appears in the current January/February 2013 issue.
