Visitor Tips and News About New York Loft Filled with Dirt
I read about the Loft of Dirt on the website and I work near it. Unfortunately they don't allow pictures, but it was really amazing. Considering I work in a loft, to see one filled with dirt just blew my mind. There's a rich earthy scent when you go in. I really do wish I could have gotten a pic.[Carol Jacob, 04/21/2011]

According to the Dia Art Foundation website, the dirt is 22" deep and covers 3,600 square feet of floor space. It was originally installed in 1977.[Danielle, 06/22/2010]
