Seven Magic Mountains
People usually settle in The Strip because it has a lot to offer from food to activities. There’s always something for everyone. Walking around the area is already amazing. It’s free anyway. That’s how full of life the city is. But there’s this place called Seven Magic Mountains that’s just 20 minutes away from The Strip. It is a unique side trip from your usual Vegas itinerary. The Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund produced Seven Magic Mountains.
Human Presence in the Desert
Seven Magic Mountains is home to seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders that measure thirty feet high. This is Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s creative expression of human presence in the desert. It was initially planned to be on exhibit for two years since it opened on May 11, 2016, but the artist has expressed a strong desire for it to be viewed longer at the site.
One will be fascinated upon seeing the towers. You’ll wonder how the rocks were stacked. It’s a combination of art and science. Choose the seven towers as your backdrop or the individual towers itself. It’s something really unique because you won’t see this kind of art anywhere.
Three Year Extension
The installation was supposed to remain on view until the end of 2018 but due its success, it can be seen for another three years through end of 2021. It was extended last 2018. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) issued a three-year permit extension for Rondinone’s artwork. The Swiss artist also expressed her artwork to be in the current location.
Catch a glimpse of form and color. Don’t miss the vibrant colors. Head to Seven Magic Mountains before you start your Vegas itinerary!
