The Orange Show is a folk-art environment - a monumental work of handmade architecture - located in Houston's East End. It was built single handedly from 1956 until its completion in 1979, by the late Jefferson Davis McKissack, a Houston postal worker.
 
The outdoor 3,000 square foot environment is maze like in design and includes an oasis, a wishing well, a pond, a stage, a museum, a gift shop, and several upper decks. It is constructed of concrete, brick, steel and found objects including gears, tiles, wagon wheels, mannequins, tractor seats and statuettes.
 
Jeff McKissack's creation extols the virtues of his favorite fruit and encourages visitors of all ages to follow his theories relating health and longevity to good nutrition, hard work and eating oranges. The Orange Show is one of the most important folk art environments in the United States.
 
The Orange Show monument is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5pm. Admission is $1.00 per person.
 
The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art preserves, presents, and promotes the extraordinary artistic expressions of ordinary people. Visit www.orangeshow.org for more information.
