Seven Magic Mountains

Twenty miles outside of Las Vegas lives an art project called Seven Magic Mountains. It's beautiful. This video gives a great behind-the-scenes look at how it was built. 

Many question the purpose of art, especially large-scale modern art installations, like Seven Magic Mountains. In response to that question, the following quote resonates with me: 

"What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit." -John Updike

Art allows people the confidence to dream that things are possible. Someone may wonder, "If this artist can put these brightly colored boulders in the middle of the desert, than why can't I fulfill my dream of going to college, starting my business idea, or building my invention?" The great thing about this world and this life is: you can.

This is amazing! Now I want to visit this place too. It looks so colorful and bright in the middle of plain desert like an oasis. I can use this location to make photos for MyAssignmentHelp magazine. Thank you for the brilliant idea!
