The desert is a place where sometimes strange and unexpected things are found... Just outside the ghost town of Rhyolite, along the side of the road is a large sculpture of a miner and his penguin... If you take the time to pause, park, and look around you will find more art... a 30' tall lego lady... she might be pink, made of cinder block, and naked... there is a last supper, a mosaic bench... there is a small visitor's center, but it was closed when I visited (but you are welcome to explore when it is closed...)
It is worth the visit... It would be worth a detour, but none is needed if you are visiting Rhyolite. Take from the art what you will... the pieces are better for the unexpected location... Something current in a place you go to see old things...
Just beyond you will find the remains of Rhyolite... with its bottle house, its ruined concrete band and stores... the railroad station on the hill above.
