Springs Preserve visitors driving between Las Vegas and Southern California on I-15 have undoubtedly seen the Ivanpah Solar facility just past the state line in California. The project generates solar electricity for Southern California homes in what plant operator BrightSource describes as the largest solar thermal plant in the world.

Although completed in 2013, Santa Fe, New Mexico artist Jamey Stillings documented the project through its construction in a series of striking black and white photographs that will be on exhibit at the Springs Preserve in the Origen Museum's Big Springs Gallery. Come and get a closer look at the solar farm you've always wondered about!
