Created by Michael Heizer, the same artist who created “City”. It is located in Moapa Valley, on the Mormon Mesa, close to the city of Overton. It is a trench 50 ft. deep, 30 ft. wide and 500 ft. long. The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MoCA) bought it. It is left to decay on purpose. Admission is free. To get there drive north on the I -15, for 51 miles, take Exit 93for the 169 and follow it for 19 miles. Turn off for Overton and turn left on Cooper St. to the air port. Turn right on airport road until you pass the dump. Follow that dirt road for 2.6 miles until you get to the first drivable road and turn left on the small dirt road, for 1.3 miles. Take the right hand side at the fork in the road until you get to the sculpture. You can always make local inquiries. Do not rely on your cell phone for assistance should you need it. You are ina sparsely populated state and the phone companies do not bother with too many cell phone towers. Also, when in Nevada always carry water and a spare. Good luck. The towns out there are very small. There may be no help. Overton itself is OK.
We are keenly interested in helping our local artists, and we donate this expensive space.This month we have three books that we promote. They are: Nevada a Strange State, Silveropolis and The Great Lake Mead Water Caper. We thank you for your help. The books can be bought on Amazon.
