Quemado

Lightning Field

off U.S. 60
Quemado, NM, United States
TEL: (505) 898-3335

You need to book well ahead for a chance to visit the mysterious Lightning Field, a gridlike sculpture by Walter De Maria comprising some 400 stainless-steel poles. You can view the artwork only by spending the night. The site can accommodate only six visitors at a time; after checking in at the Dia Art Foundation’s office in Quemado, you’re taken to spend the night in a rustic log cabin with three bedrooms, a fridge stocked with enchiladas, and a porch that opens right onto the exhibit.
