The MooMoo Girls Minus One. 

As soon as I saw The Seven Magic Mountains via Instagram I added it to my list of must-sees. I was immediately intrigued and besides being excited to see them, I wondered why they were built in the first place. After doing my research I found out artist Ugo Rondinone was the creator and this was the big version of some of his most famous works. The Swiss born artist doesn't have one specific medium that he uses. But my favorite besides the Seven Magic Mountains is the Spirited, Blue Mountains. I like them because they remind me of Stonehenge.

Check out some of Ugo Rondinone's work. If you've never heard of him, here's a great start with the Seven Magic Mountains. The exhibit is seven, 30 to 35 feet dayglow totems comprised of painted, locally-sourced boulders. The exhibit is a two year exhibit and it's outside of the Las Vegas desert. Check it out next time you're in Nevada, take a picture and tag it #eyeADVENTURE.
