  • We all loved this ever evolving art installation located in the middle of nowhere. We were told that over couple of thousand artists contributed to its creation. The entrance is free but donations...

  • After our shoot at Salvation Mountain we went to see East Jesus - make sure you bring much time to explore!

  • Billed as the only art museum in Imperial County, that may be true, so if you like folk art (at least I think that is what it is called) this would probably be a worthwhile experience. It is unique for sure. I liked it, however much of it is to the extreme. It is all made from other people's trash basically. Some of it is very clever and unique and some of it is tired and worn out and needs a refresh.
  • Slab City is a very interesting place you have to see for yourself. This is where lawless society comes to life. Luckily, I didn't see any locals, but I feel like they're around somewhere. If you're a parent reading this and don't like your kids to see a bunch of profanity everywhere, then this isn't the place for you. If you like seeing art in a special display, then check it out for yourself. But be warned that Slab City is at your own risk.
