  • Absolutely awesome. A gem in Midtown Houston. Take the kids, take the hubby, take the wife. Reminds me of the Chicago bean. Lovely.
  • Another fine FREE Oasis in Houston. Shade, tables & chairs, about a dozen large sculptures. Paid Parking minor challenge. Near CAM (Contemporary Art Museum) & Jung (as in Carl) Center. Sometimes small exhibits, functions, & bookstore. Steps to Art Museum, "MFAH," city view STEPS to outside observation level (mesa).
