A few years ago, I told you guys about Salvation Mountain, an art installation piece created by Leonard Knight of nearby Slab City, California, which is located not far from the Salton Sea. Knight was forced to leave his mountain due to failing health, but it lives on as “a folk art site worthy of preservation and protection”. A nearby road sign proclaims Slab City as the “Last Free Space,” home of hippies and anti-government types who live in a collection of trailers and sculpture sites in the middle of the desert. It is a free campsite and you can stay as long as you want. One of its best known art pieces is called Rockette Bob’s “Church of Broken Toys”. It’s basically a camper with an attached decked out truck. Various pieces of old playthings and junk are glued all over it, including a broken television and an old Santa figurine. So it’s more of an aesthetic design than a practical one, if you know what I mean? Anyway, I believe several churches on wheels exist, which is great because we definitely need more cars and trucks with bling.
