MGM Resorts International, a company long committed to supporting and displaying public art in Las Vegas, and its ARIA Resort & Casino, is a proud title sponsor for internationally renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains. The colorful large-scale, public artwork is located in the Nevada desert a few miles south of the Las Vegas Strip.
Across the desert south of Las Vegas, Nevada, rises a large, colorful anomaly. Seven colossal stone forms defy gravity with their formations. The shapes, reminiscent of naturally-occurring hoodoos, seem poised between monumentality and collapse. The mammoth contemporary cairns created by internationally-renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone evoke the art of meditative rock balancing, and mark his place in the history of Land Art.
