Beyond Salvation Mountain, at the back of ‘the last free place’ – i.e.Slab City – is the East Jesus Sculpture Garden. It was my first visit. To get there, you have to go through Slab City, hang a left and loop round until you get to the Fork in the Road.
Taking the right path, obviously we arrived at a collection of large scale upcycled assemblage art. One of my favorites was the life-sized Ele. I don’t know if it’s officially called that at the moment, but I figure they’ll be working on putting in the phant as materials allow.
As with all art, it provides something of a different window on the world.
