Mosaics at The Orange Show, a Houston, Texas art environment

Jeff McKissack was a Houston postman when he created The Orange Show. He did it to honor the orange, his favorite fruit. Using found objects, he constructed it from 1956 until his death in 1980. Visitors will see on the site bricks, tiles, iron fencing, tractor seats, iron wagon wheels, iron pipes and what all. The place is a maze of little walkways, mosaics, arenas, steps and stairs. This place is about 6.5 hours from the Abita Mystery House in Abita Springs, another folk art environment.
