Overview
More
Eliphante is on the banks of Oak Creek in Cornville, Arizona. It is home to the outdoor artworks and sculptures of Michael Kahn and Leda Livant Kahn, as created for nearly 30 years. Built out of found and natural materials, it remains cared for by Eliphante, Ltd., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Members and donors who wish to support this unique, otherworldly, outdoor folk art environment also contribute to its advancement towards becoming a commercial outdoor art museum, as it is presently zoned a private residence and not open to the general public.

Nothing short of amazing. I have no idea how to get to it again. We went there several years ago during a fund raiser to help the now aging artists who created this incredible home, expanding, adding rooms at odd angles. Built during hippy days...More

Elephante is quite the experience! Located along Oak Creek out with nature. The whole place from the art, structures, surroundings are spectacular. It is a vortex in Cornville, many great vibrations as you walk through each place, your mouth will be open in awe.

It's true that many locals don't know about Eliphante, although that changes more every day. All proceeds of membership to Eliphante go to support preservation and restoration of these amazing works of art. There are no live elephants here, although caretakers may refer to themselves...More
