  • Mad-max in the desert. Pretty creative wacky art...and someone had lots of time. You’ll need a good hour to see it all. The artist has some very interesting pieces and some are driven by social issues/events. I really like how it’s in an open desert and public ally accessible.
  • This place is a jewel, made out of what we could consider trash. The multiple pieces are pretty diverse, yet have this cohesive element that allows you to appreciate the place as a whole. The sculptures emulate the landscape’s atmosphere. If you, like most the people I know, use the desert as a get away, make sure to explore this place, who knows you may find a bit of yourself there.
