We stopped to see the artwork while visiting the ghost town. It was mostly outdoors and the artwork sparked curiosity. Certainly gave us something to talk about on our trip.

An open air museum with unusual displays modelled using real folk as the moulds for figures representing the Last Supper, other pieces of modern art are also displayed.

Little haphazard. Last supper interesting. Seem more like a casual exercise in junk art . Convenient stop while visiting Rhyolite.

We stopped by last week on a drive from Las Vegas to Carson City. It's always a fun stop. Looks like there are a couple of new pieces. I don't remember the single ghost person having had a palette in its hand before. Also, the...More

Cool and funky art installations in the middle of the desert. Worth taking a quick stop 15-30 minutes to snap some photos and look around. Highly recommend stopping here since your in the area.

You have to love people that make and share art just for art's sake. We really enjoyed seeing all the different outdoor art pieces on display here. There's a lot of variety, even more whimsy, and it's just fun. Go check it out, take some...More

This was a great discovery I had never seen before. Along the edges of Death Valley. To view the sculptures of Albert Szukalski was a amazing site.

Beatty site as the gateway to Death Valley and Rhyolite offers it's own mystique. Why anyone wanted to mix modern art into this fray is beyond me. It would make more sense to put an actual Rhyolite museum in Rhyolite than this unusual occurrence.
