So much to see crammed into every corner possible. We were not lucky enough to see Randy, but I assume his work speaks for him. We love these kinds of places. We only got to tour the courtyard section.

Not quite sure exactly how to describe this. The painting on the homes were cool but the yard you walk into looks like someone painted their junk in their backyard. Not really worth going to see, in my opinion.

It's fun and free. (Drop a donation if you're willing.) Why else would you not like this cool little fun spot? If you have kids, they will have a blast without breaking your wallet.

What an amazing place. So many fun things to look at - a collection of chairs hanging from a staircase, wig heads with masks, planting’s in unlikely recepticles, a turtle sporting Mardigras beads. Every member of our group saw something different.

He was around when we visited. He was really making an effort to stop each group of visitors to talk with them. :)
