The Orange Show Monument is a folk-art environment in Houston's East End. It was built single-handedly by Jefferson Davis McKissack, a Houston postal worker, from 1956 until its completion in 1979. Maze-like in design, it includes an oasis, a wishing well, a pond, a stage, and several upper decks – made of concrete, brick, steel, as well as a wide range of found objects. Each individual piece of the Orange Show Monument was hand-placed and painted by McKissack himself.
