  • East Jesus was perhaps one of the most profound experiences I had out in the California desert. It is home to an outsider art assemblage created by the people who live off the grid in the desert. Thes...  more »
  • East Jesus is kind of art exhibition that is located in Slab city, near the Salvation Mountain. Free admission. Anyone can move and add an artwork to the collection. Interactive, you can touch, play, use, but don't take away or break. Sculptures made with tires, walls of TVs with messages written above, a crocodile of barbed wire ... and whenever you go is different. For some it is genial, for others a heap of spazzatura...io I opt for a middle ground.

  • Cool Place. People there were really friendly and even gave us a tour of the exhibits and the living area. Would definitely recommend as a stop going through that area.
  • It's a must visit when you're traveling through the badlands. Stop at Bombay Beach and have a beer, then to Salvation Mountain and Slab City. Check out the Art of East Jesus, then end at the Geothermal Mud Volcanoes. You'll get your post-apocalyptic fix!
  • This is a must see, but probably not in the hottest summer months. Hard to focus on fascinating art installations while you're bursting into flames.
  • What a unique place. If you're coming to see Salvation Mountain, you have to drive the extra couple miles to come to East Jesus. Following my recent trip, East Jesus left me with far more memories than Salvation Mountain. We even had a free tour guide. Make sure you climb the unsafe lookout tower, try your luck at put-put golf and bowling, and get a photo in the kissing booth!
  • Another cool place to visit if you are out in this area. My wife felt a little sketched out by the area but all the people I met were chill. Come this these amazing works of art and my kids loved the bowling alley
