East Jesus: Slab City

IMG_7105

East Jesus is not a religious site, as the name might imply.  It is actually, an ever-expanding sculpture garden.  The artists that live in this section of The Slabs work daily on new art, which is mostly composed of refuse from around Slab City.  They work off-grid on these sculptures.  It is meant to show the public what recycling and sustainability can be.  I think it also shows how much waste were produce.  Some of the art is thought-provoking, some is funny, some is down-right crazy.

I love this MCM chair.  I feel this sculpture represents my former life when I was marking term papers while sitting on my orange fibreglass chair. 😉

We are thankful to Ted and Dona again, who came out to visit us on the Slabs so that we could tour East Jesus and Salvation Mountain.  We had so much fun!
