I was attending a meeting in the Galleria section of town but enjoy visionary art. After visiting the Beer Can House ( which is very worthwhile with nice exhibits of visionary art around the states and the world inside ) I cabbed over to the...More

The Orange Show's creator envisioned a destination that prove more popular than Disneyland, and set about creating it out of a variety of materials, including lots of mosaic with various sayings and two small show areas with mounted tractor seats for visitors. The result is...More

A bizarre accumulation of "art" centered around oranges. It is well worth the excursion to this slightly out-of-the-way attraction. Staffed by local artists it celebrates oranges in a Bizarro World-like way. We were very happy we went and the trip and the staff led us...More

Small, strange, a little Tom Waits meets Grey Gardens meets Barnum & Bailey- worth a quick visit. Also a great chance to see one of Houston's neighborhood wards.

We drove to this and were unimpressed. We opted to not even get out of the car. Nothing at the scene drew us in or made us want to stop the car to take a closer look.

If you like odd art then you will probably like this place. It's a testament of what you can do with recycled objects. Charge $5 admission, kids under 12 are free. It's worth a visit. Be sure and check out Smithers Park just down the...More

I found this not an uplifting experience: the scope, vision resulted in a melancholic experience. The creator had steam and oranges on his mind, expected the world to appreciate the vision he had created. The world did not come. Well worth the experience. The young...More

This place is very eclectic and colorful. It costs a few dollars to get in (it goes to the restoration of it) but it is a fantastic place to take pictures - many neat colorful backdrops including hearts and mosaics, and different light levels. There...More
