Man on a Mission

Man on a Mission

Leonard Knight, who began building his massive desert art project in 1985
and has by his account, used upwards of 100,000 gallons of paint
to cover his sculptured mountain wonderland.

A squatter on Government land, Leonard has worked on his giant painted desert
with the idea of it becoming a museum of sorts
and a possible legacy for him when he's shuffled off
this mortal coil.

He abhors organized religion and hasn't set foot in a church in years.

I just saw this place on "California Gold" on the educational channel. This is way out there in more ways than one - great photos.

Jill: Though I responded to you personally, I thought I'd let other viewers know that yes, Leonard lives there and loves to talk and show you his "baby", just like any proud papa. Truly worth a visit. - DC

How I would love the story on this man. Does he actually live there? What did he talk about? Sorry Dan, but this one definitely has my interest:)
