A vibrant new cultural asset in Houston's emerging East End, Smither Park is an artistic venue for leisure-time activities as well as the ceremonies of life such as weddings, picnics, performances and meditation.

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 and being designed and executed by local artists and those interested in exploring their own creative potential.

A project of The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art in collaboration with renowned architect and designer Dan Phillips, Smither Park is a work of art in progress -- providing a unique opportunity to see artists in action and the evolution of an international artistic destination.
