Visit the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach

Monday, May 14, 2018
On our most recent trip to Miami Beach I recognized this colorful stacked up rocks.  Have you heard  the Seven Magic Mountains art installation in Las Vegas?  It's same , except you will only see one tower. The genius man behind this beautiful art is the Swiss artist  Ugo Rondinone. Ugo Rondinone is an internationally-renowned artist. His works range from neon signs to paintings to eerily realistic life-sized clown figures, sitting slumped over on the floor of a gallery. All of his works mesh everyday experiences and objects with colorful, fantastical, and often-strange elements. Seven Magic Mountains in ( Las Vegas, Nevada) is one of his first forays outside of a gallery and into land art.

It is  such a beautiful part of Miami Beach, where you can relax outside under the palm trees and scenic lawn park, or walk over to the beach.  Located on the corner of 21st Street and Collins Avenue. 


This iconic Miami Mountain is the latest series, recognizable for its brightly colored, fluorescent contrasting palates. It has been acquired by The Bass Museum . The work art, towering 42 feet tall, is permanently installed in Collins Park downtown Miami. 



Across this park is the Bass it is a small museum  but has decent collection of exhibits. The most popular exhibit is the different human size clowns, each and everyone has different expressions in their faces, either sitting or lying on the floor.

    1. Imagine seven towers of this piled up rocks all in one place. I've heard they will close down that attraction in Vegas. I feel sad but I am glad I've seen one on this trip.

    1. It reminds me of every time you hike in a mountain and people piled some rocks to get noticed that they were somehow stop by on that same trail. But this one is huge and very colorful hard to not be noticed.
