It's stacked painted rocks. I think it's cool but if 100k per rock moved was spent that's retarded. I Wonder...was there an artists who though up this concept, if so, how much did the artist get? If he got paid a bunch of money for this then it's outrageous IMO. Could of had some taggers paint the rocks for free as part of a community service program.

I suppose they could have had a couple thousand prisoners lift the rocks into place.

"“Seven Magic Mountains” cost $3.5 million, but not $3.5 million in tax dollars. The Nevada Commission on Tourism kicked in $100,000, but that body is supposed to give away money to draw tourists, and that’s a relatively small amount. The big bucks came from private donors, with Aria resort being the largest."

This seems fairly uninteresting to me; I would consider going there a waste of time. With all the natural beauty the lands out West have to offer, who needs to see a bunch of painted rocks?

But yet Ted Whiting (Arias top surveillance guy) will cry foul when a card counter wins $20 off their good DD blackjack game. These casinos do such stupid things!

I don't get that at all. Is it out of budget limitations or that some art is supposed to be temporary, like the Cristo Umbrellas (which I saw)?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

At the end of the exhibition, perhaps the rocks will be pulverized, and the chips sold off as magical charms.
