Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund are developing education and interpretation materials for schools, on-site smartphone tours, lectures, and other public programs for the community that will place Seven Magic Mountains within the larger context of artworks created on public lands in the Western United States.


View or download Interpretive Facts by Nevada Museum of Art Center for Art + Environment Director Bill Fox, renowned land art scholar and researcher. Fox correlates Rondinone’s work to thousands of years of human creative interaction with natural and built environments, extending from the first century B.C.E. into the modern era.


Archive materials from Seven Magic Mountains are available to researchers at the Nevada Museum of Art Center for Art + Environment in Reno, along with archives of projects by Michael Heizer, Walter De Maria, Charles Ross, and many other Land artists from around the world. The Center’s Research Library has an extensive collection of publications about public art, site-specific sculpture, and related topics to provide context for Rondinone’s works. Please visit the Center online.
