Ugo Rondinone / Seven Magic Mountains
Las Vegas isn’t one of my favorite places (sorry, Nevada), but I’d gladly make a trip west to see Ugo Rondinone‘s Seven Magic Mountains public art piece with my own eyes. The Swiss artist’s installation sits just south of Vegas smack in the middle of the desert, each of the seven towers of locally-sourced limestone masses standing between 30 and 35 feet tall. The neon painted columns appear either lined up in a row or clustered together depending on where you’re standing. The monumental piece of land art will be on view for two years as of May 2016.
