The Seven Magic Mountains art installation is easy to see from I15, with its 35-foot-high towers of multi-colored boulders rising out of the desert east of I15, about ten miles south of Las Vegas. Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone's creation is an impressive piece of public art. These neon hoodoos look a little like the natural rock formations found in the Southwest, only instead of being sculpted by wind and rain, these locally sourced boulders were put into place with heavy equipment. The installation will be on display at least through the end of 2021 and maybe extended through 2026. The installation's set against the backdrop of Jean Dry Lake and the surrounding desert is photo-worthy and worth exploring from every angle. Seven Magic Mountains might not be an artwork in the traditional sense, but it is a uniquely creative and engineering achievement, and it's totally free.
- Free Things to Do: "The desert site where Seven Magic Mountains sits does not have a restroom or other facilities, so be sure to be prepared when you visit."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: The brightly colored rock towers of Seven Magic Mountains are a unique art installation in the desert.
