Jim Denevan is an American artist who creates temporary land art. He is also the founder of the massive site-specific food events Outstanding in the Field, a global traveling farm dinner series hosting between 130-200 people over a five-hour time span. His main gig is land art and sand drawings, a passion which came to Denevan when surfing; viewing beaches as empty canvases, he envisioned creating earth art right on the beach. His creations usually last a few hours before being washed away by the tides. In March 2010, Denevan was commissioned by The Anthropologist to create a large-scale drawing on Lake Baikal, Siberia, and is the world's largest single artwork. A documentary of the journey and artwork called Art Hard was released in 2011.
