This book, Desert Sculpture Park — Mitzpe Ramon, is a work in progress. It is a tribute to Ezra Orion and the artists who created a cultural treasure on what had been a trash dump.

This sculpture collection deserves better treatment than it has been accorded so far. Perhaps this modest effort will focus public attention that will lead to better maintenance, labels to properly identify the sculpture and the artists, and interpretative signage that will inform visitors about the value of the place. Desert Sculpture Park has to be protected from commercial development, and official neglect.

I hope you enjoy browsing through the pieces of work.
