East Jesus

If you are at the Salton Sea, do yourself a favor and visit East Jesus. Located near "Slab City" (Niland, CA), this unique artist community will amaze with their unique sculpture garden. Admission is free, but a donation would be appreciated. We were given a tour by one of the artists. Each artist is given an area of earth in which to create. Some call focus to our rapidly growing waste problem while another call focus to our sustainability issues. To be quite honest, this community feels a little like a burning man camp. Check out the photos and if you have the time, visit East Jesus.
