Visitors are welcome to come and explore the public art displays in and around the property. Using paints, plants, plastic animals, yard sale finds and discarded construction materials, creator Randy Gilson has transformed his home and surrounding buildings into a colorful Pittsburgh landmark. This vibrant set of buildings is a centerpiece that continues to attract both tourists and locals.

Special Pittsburgh experience. An amazing amount of kitsch and folk art gathered and displayed by Randy. An imagination and creative spirit on the loose here. What fun!
