- Creation Date
- between 1989 and 1991
This footage documents the visit of the Folk Art Society of America to Salvation Mountain. The group brings paint to Leonard Knight, the creator of Salvation Mountain. Discussion topics include Leonard as an artist and a hot air balloon representation he is working on as part of Salvation Mountain. Several participants are interviewed about what makes Leonard's work at Salvation Mountain unique and how it compares to similar works of art.
Also, the sound cuts out at about 23 minutes and comes back for a minute at 29 minutes, fades out and comes back again after about the 30 minute mark. During this period, the video is uninterrupted and shows the visitors on the top of Salvation Mountain.
