Seven Magic Mountains Art Project Opens May 11th
The Las Vegas desert located next to our SPEEDVEGAS racetrack will be receiving a colorful new addition as the Seven Magic Mountains art project opens to the Public on May 11th. This project has been five years in the making and cost $3.5 million of private denotations. Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone is the brainchild behind these seven brightly colored pillars of limestone that stand between 30 and 35 feet tall with a combined weight of 25 tons. “Seven Magic Mountains elicits continuities and solidarities between human and nature, artificial and natural, then and now”, explains Rondinone. These sculptures will remain on display for two years where their fate after that remains unknown.
LAS VEGAS NEWS
When considering all of the gaudiness of Las Vegas, the Seven Magic Mountains (think Stonehenge meets Rainbow Brite) fits right in. What is even more impressive than the art work itself is the location of the art project. Over 50% of those that visited Las Vegas in 2015 arrived by ground transportation and 29% of all Las Vegas visitors come from California. These brightly colored rocks will be visible from the I-15 to everyone who is traveling into town. Those that are interested in checking out the Seven Magic Mountains will need to take the Jean exit on I-15 and travel south on Las Vegas BLVD.
Nothing beats a day of looking at flashy colored rocks like driving an exotic supercar around our exclusive 1.5-mile SPEEDVEGAS racetrack where you will be able to enjoy 12 turns, elevation changes and the longest front straight in Las Vegas.
