From The Orange Show to 2401 Munger

This is an insider's view of the recently conserved and re-opened Museum inside the World Famous Orange Show. I'm a board member of the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art which preserves and manages the Orange Show, the Beer Can House, produces the Art Car Parade and is building Smither Park, Houston's first visionary sculpture garden. Check out our website www.orangeshow.org for a complete listing of upcoming activities and events including concerts, hands-on art workshops and much much more.
