The town of Rhyolite, Nevada was once home to a booming mining town. Now, it's a ghost town. Rhyolite is also home to an open air art museum that was founded by a famous Belgian artist in 1984. The Goldwell Open Air Art Museum hosts pieces that include a life-size depiction of The Last Supper and other projects including a new piece by Clark County artists David Berg that moves in the wind. Goldwell isn't the only place in Nevada to see large outdoor art projects. We'll talk with the president of Goldwell's board of directors about the museum and open air art in Nevada.
