“a large scale desert artwork”

Renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s colorful large-scale, public artwork Seven Magic Mountains is a two-year exhibition located in the desert outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring seven thirty to thirty-five-foot high dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders. Visible across the desert landscape along Interstate 15, Seven Magic Mountains offers a creative critique of the simulacra of destinations like Las Vegas. According to Rondinone, the location is physically and symbolically mid-way between the natural and the artificial: the natural is expressed by the mountain ranges, desert, and Jean Dry Lake backdrop, and the artificial is expressed by the highway and the constant flow of traffic between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Seven Magic Mountains is produced by the Art Production Fund, New York and Nevada Museum of Art, Reno. Approximately 10 miles south of the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and St. Rose Parkway in Henderson, the installation site is a short distance from Jean Dry Lake where Michael Heizer and Jean Tinquely created legendary land art works in the 1960s. Many of the project’s public programs will take place at ARIA Resort & Casino, and partner locations in Nevada, including the Marjorie Barrick Museum on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

It was a nice break from the hypnotic hold driving can have. Just a few short miles down a road running parallel to the highway. Standing much bigger then previously thought with expansive views of the beauty that is Arizona.

It was a nice break from the rigors or distance driving. There are great photo ops and if you listen carefully you can here blasting coming from the near by mine.

Worth the 5 minute drive off Hwy 15 to break up the drive. Great place to stretch your legs and let the kids run around. Take less than 5 minutes to get some memorable pictures.

Kind of underwhelming from the road but I will for sure stop on the way back to get a good pic for the blog. www.adistantmentality.blogspot.com

Drove by on the way down 15, An interesting contrast to the desert colors around it! Probably wouldn't have stopped as a destination on its own but was cool to drive by.
