AAA Editor Notes
Goldwell Open Air Museum is 2.5 mi. w. of Beatty off SR 374, near the ghost town of Rhyolite. This outdoor museum covers nearly 8 acres and features large-scale works of art created by Belgian artists. The first piece, installed in 1984, was Albert Szukalski's “The Last Supper,” a ghostly interpretation of Leonardo da Vinci's rendition of Christ and his disciples that is set against the expansive backdrop of the Amargosa Valley.
Other pieces, situated amid a stark Mojave Desert landscape, include a 25-foot-tall female figure created out of pink cinder blocks, chrome car parts arranged to resemble a desert blossom, a couch covered with colorful tiles and a beautifully carved winged woman atop a pedestal reaching toward the sun.
Picnicking is permitted.
