An Uncanny Mountain Monument Is the Focus of an Outsider Artist for Half a Century

The main building on the Mountain Thunder Monument site

Like everything in the complex, the main building — whose lofted archway is the most visible feature from the adjacent highway — is adorned with fragments of architectural salvage and repurposed refuse, and guarded by several statuary works. Some of these are modeled entirely from scratch, while others incorporate found materials that create a commentary on the ways in which American Indians have been displaced within colonial culture.
