  • Very neat little escape from the more routine tourist trap scenery. Economical, relaxing and serene are good words for it. Educational if you're not super familiar with the Catholic faith and the history of Christianity. I admire the talent and devotion that Brother Joseph showed to his faith and the fruits of his labor. Over 40 years of artistic and spiritual evolution can be seen in his works... Lots of little hidden gems inside the pieces as well. I really loved the concept of him recycling and upcycling random objects, refuse, and garbage into his works before it was even a thing to do. Overall, a fun way to spend a couple hours. Gift shop has some unique items, some at reasonable pricing some higher. Still haven't figured out why there is one singular print of Egyptian Eye of Horus or Osiris... Is this like a Yin/Yang type of concept 😕
  • Wow! The artwork is great. Outdoors but we'll shaded with tired trees. The admission is already reasonable and they offer discounts on top of that . Well worth the trip.
