This was an incredible thing to see in person. It is a powerful artistic response to neglected or abandoned properties and objects. It exemplifies the proverb - One man's trash is another man's treasure. It challenges both the condition and assumptions about its solution.

Unique array of misc odd junk affixed to houses/trees in neighborhood. Quirky at best. Artist friend took dozens of photos. Not my cup of tea. So truly in the eye of the beholder.

This area is full of rats and vermin crawling around all of the stuffed animals and garbage that is in the park, nailed to homes and strewn about. It's a total disgusting pit.

This place is worth a drive out to see. Very interesting street art. Many of the homes have signs saying not to take photographs so be careful of that.

I cannot believe the artistry that is involved in making this attraction. The artist has a very imaginative mind.

I wouldn't have known about this place had a friend not brought me here. It's pretty cool. It's an outdoor art exhibit consisting of "stuff"..and lots of it. Some people don't get it but I certainly think it's better than deteriorating blight, which is all...More

It's a great manifestation of free speech, but I don't really get the art. It's interesting to look at and my teenage kids found it midly amusing for about 20 minutes.
