Thanks Dan,
This is sad news. I hope Salvation Mountain continues to stand as testament to Leonard Knight's faith and perseverance. RIP Kevin.

Our artist friends at East Jesus are seeking donations to replace a dead battery in their solar panel system that is keeping their artist space in the desert alive.

Here's what they're offering to those that contribute to the cause:

Oh well, with Leonard living in an assisted living facility, things have changed at Salvation Mountain but the mountain remains.

Here are a whole slew of videos you can check out on Leonard and Salvation Mountain via You Tube:

Here's a very interesting video that was done for KPBS in San Diego and covers some of the history and future status of Salvation Mountain:
http://www.youtube.co...­

"It took artist Leonard Knight almost 30 years to build a mountain out of adobe and paint in the middle of the Imperial Valley desert. It's called Salvation Mountain and it draws thousands of tourists to the area. KPBS arts reporter Angela Carone finds out why a monument to religious salvation, now needs its own savior."
