Seven Magic Mountains by Gianfranco Gorgoni.
FIELD NOTES: Since it opened on May 11, 2016, Seven Magic Mountains has been under constant public surveillance and Instagram is essential in sharing the experience of the stacked Day-Glo boulders. It was fitting the social media platform was one way to announce the Ugo Rondinone sculpture will sit along the Interstate 15 longer than the original two years . . . Stay Up: The artist has “expressed a strong desire to explore ways to keep the artwork on view at its current site,” according to Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund, who co-produced the installation. They are also seeking how Seven Magic Mountains can remain a roadside public art landmark even longer. "While the plan progresses, we can state with certainty that, at a minimum, the installation will remain on view through the end of 2018," said the art producers.
