De Maria, Walter (American painter and sculptor, 1935-2013)

Note: De Maria worked in genres that came to be called earthworks, Conceptual Art and Minimal art. He studied music and performed as a percussionist in jazz and rock groups in New York in the 1960s, including an early incarnation of the Velvet Underground. Perhaps best known for large-scale outdoor works that often involved simple ideas rendered in grand ways: his Earth Room in New York City, and The Lightning Field in New Mexico are two well-known examples.
