Monoliths 2020 Art Installations

Utah Monolith

The monolith was a man-made art installation not an ancient alien artifact.

Utah Monolith 2020

The Utah monolith was a metal pillar that stood in a red sandstone slot canyon in northern San Juan County, Utah. The pillar was 3 m (9.8 ft) tall and made of metal sheets riveted into a triangular prism. It was unlawfully placed on public land between July and October 2016. In November 2020, state biologists discovered it during a helicopter survey of wild bighorn sheep.

Within days, members of the public found the pillar using GPS mapping software and made their way to the remote location. The identity of its makers, and their objectives, are unknown. Following intense media coverage, it was covertly removed on November 27, 2020, by four unidentified men. Similar metal columns have appeared in California, Canada, Nevada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Romania; the California and Romania monoliths were removed; however, the California one, afterwards, was replaced by the original artists. According to CNN News, the Utah monolith has all the elements required to become the year's biggest art story, at a time when the art world has been stifled by the pandemic.

A few days later the Utah Monolith was dismantled and removed in the dead of night

Since the discovery of the Utah monolith others have been discovered in different parts of the world guided by those who want to - make otherworldly connections, have time on their hands due to the coronavirus pandemic, want to make money and become better known for their artwork, or just for fun. Several are built near sacred sites. Utah takes us to the Anasazi Puebloans, legends of the Anasazi and Ancient Aliens.
