Ugo Rondinone will color the landscape with artificial stones near Jean Dry Lake, said Amanda Horn, director of communications for Nevada Museum of Art in Reno. The large-scale public art is titled “Seven Magic Mountains” and a collaboration with Art Production Fund and NMA. It scheduled for viewing in early 2016. More from an early press release:
The project will feature seven massive dayglow totems of painted stones along Interstate 15, which connects Los Angeles to Las Vegas, and will be on view for two years. The artificial stones, which will be visible for many miles in the flat desert landscape, offer a contemporary critique of the simulacra of destinations like Las Vegas.
