Feature by Max Allbee
Driving through a small dusty New Mexico border town you never know what you will stumble upon. While visiting some family recently in southern New Mexico, I found Steve Zobeck and the City of the Sun artist community. Rolling past pieced together structures from old motor homes, buses, sheds, adobe and unimaginable materials, Steve’s massive dazzling towers and brightly colored erratic partitions stole the curiosity. After realizing his zestful and simple creative intentions and cool character I began to understand how a project of this magnitude can thrive.
Steve Zobeck is also a accomplished “Rock Star”, putting up his rock stacks along freeways from the Mexican border to Iowa. Read more about Steve and his rock staking in this Iowa news feature.
