A vibrant new cultural asset in Houston's emerging East End is Smither Park. This whimsical, fanciful green space features an amphitheater, memory wall, meditation area, covered pavilion, swings and an interactive sculpture, each adorned with elaborate mosaic work created out of recycled and found materials.

It's a work of art in progress -- providing a unique opportunity to see artists in action and the evolution of an international artistic destination. Local artists design and execute the pieces.

The project is part of The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art in collaboration with renowned architect and designer Dan Phillips.

The park is located at 2402 Munger St. Houston, TX 77023. It's open from dawn to dusk.
