Fun wonderland of outsider art featuring--you guessed it--the Orange. Jeff McKissack, a postal worker and hobby welder, used concrete, rebar, mosaic tiles, found objects and recycled materials to create this not-to-be-missed Houston gem. You can spend 30 minutes to 2 hours touring the site, which includes a new park at the end of the block featuring a wall of mosaic art and an amphitheater.

Spent my some time here doing community service here as a teenager... I use to marvel at the craftsmanship... the time there lead to my deep love of all things art! Thank you Orange show even after these many years

I literally found this place by typing for directions from "The Shire" to "Mordor" in Google maps. Apparently, Google thinks this place is Mordor.
