mirage: noah purifoy's outdoor sculpture museum

One of the places which we visited last summer (while shooting Mirage. In Order of Appearance) was Noah Purifoy's Outdoor Sculpture Museum. This surreal and highly psychedelic place is located on 10 acres of open land in Joshua Tree, California. It includes dozens of large scale assemblages created by the artist between 1989–2004. Purifoy was a visual artist known for using wreckage collected after the Watts Riots (1965) and organizing the historical 66 Signs of Neon exhibition, based on those salvaged materials.
