  • This seems like a great way for a neighborhood to reclaim its "junk" and manufacture it into art. The woman at the Yellow House is quite fun to talk to and the stuff is certainly interesting to look at. We spent a total of, maybe, 30 minutes here.
  • Extremely cool setting and cultural point of interest, and very important to see. This is an amazing art installation the size of several blocks! The old materials, the surreal visuals, the social commentary, really an eye-opening place to spend time. Highly recommended!
