FIELD NOTES: "Seven Magic Mountains," the temporary public art installation by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone that will be installed and displayed for two-years near Jean Dry Lake, had a Special Use Permit request approved by Clark County. Other paperwork is expected to be completed over the summer. Co-produced by New York’s Art Production Fund and Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, the large-scale work of seven 25 to 30-foot high totems are made of boulders, local rocks only, painted in DayGlo colors. "Seven Magic Mountains" is currently under construction in Las Vegas.
