The Orange Show is the brainchild of Mr. Jeff McKissack, who spent his life, and his money on this project. He obviously had a special relationship with oranges, but he also liked orange as a color.
He spent about 25 years of his life to build this “house”, that he thought was going to be a great success. He died three months after he opened the house to the public, without seeing his “creature” coming to fame. Someone even said that he died of a broken heart because of the failure of his project. It’s all a different story now, as Mr. Jeff McKissack continues to live through “The Orange Show” and the foundation that has been created after his death, that takes care of eclectic artists from all over the world. The Orange Show is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places designated by the United States Department of the Interior. If you’re really in the mood for something eclectic, pay a visit there, the lady that let us in today was very nice, she gave us two postcards, and a questionnaire with weird questions Mr. McKissack himself formulated. For $1 each, you really have to come see it! Because of all the colors, the place reminded me of a Gaudi project with a strong Picasso influence, I hope you get the feeling!
