One of the initiators of site-specific architectural sculpture -- a significant shift in attitude that brought land art into a social context -- Tacha has been a finalist in more than 135 national and international competitions. Of the 42 commissions she won, 30 have been executed throughout the United States, from New York to Arizona, Florida to Alaska, including an entire city-block park in downtown Philadelphia. Trained in Greece, France and America as both an artist and art historian, Tacha has always written articulate texts for her proposals and most of these texts are published in this book for the first time.

Her executed commissions are presented in large illustrations together with smaller reproductions of 58 models for upbuilt projects, each with an explanatory statement.Through her candid documentation of successes and failures in working with public commissions, Tacha offers her wide experience with hundreds of competitions.

As a result, artists, landscape architects, historians, critics and collectors with an interest in the history of public art will find Dancing in the Landscape an invaluable reference.
