L.I. boulders for art?

NPR ran a story today on an artist who will be collecting boulders from Long Island for a sculpture show at the Guggenheim in 2011. See story here.I am not sure how I feel about this. Actually, I object strongly. Many of the "boulders" on Long Island are the only thing that remains unchanged as the land has gone from farms to sod to vineyards , houses and malls. Why would I want some artist to take them, changing the landscape forever-"just" for some art?
