This somewhat unique patriotic sculpture is located within Lynn Eusan Park on the campus of the University of Houston.

Here are a few of my favorite images from last Sunday's 2011 Art Car Parade. How can you not enjoy a cute bunny... with large, sharp, pointy teeth?
Or a car covered with synchronized singing fish?
... and this. I have no explanation, but this last image summed up the afternoon.

Dr. Seuss?? Cars weren't the only thing participating in the Art Car Parade. There were plenty of people representing the 2-wheeled versions.
Some... a little more enthusiastic than others.
Some... a little more diabolic.
Some... were thinking out of the box a bit.
and others... well... your guess is as good as mine.

A big part of the Art Car Parade is having fun, and that was quite obvious as several of the entries were "groups". I'm not sure what the affiliation or connection was, but this group of Zebras definitely were having a BLAST
Even the kids got involved!!

The 2011 Art Car Parade had over 250 entries. Some were automobiles with fancy paint jobs, some were simple projects, some were over-the-top works of art.
Several took an animal theme.
Some took a more mythical animal theme.
...and then there were...
Your guess is as good as mine.

This... is an Art Car.
And today was the annual spectacular that is the Art Car Parade. 300,000 of my closest friends lined Allen Parkway soaking in the over 250 entries that made up The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art's 24th parade.
I'll spend the next several days re-visiting today's action, so tune in to see what sort of craziness ensued.

We could call use that from time to time, couldn’t we? Housed in the whimsically Robert Venturi-designed building, The Children’s Museum of Houston is 90,000 square feet of interactive fun for our younger citizens. Voted the best children’s museum in the country by Parent’s Magazine it houses several permanent exhibits, and is a VERY popular destination for birthday parties.

It might not look like it, but this is actually one of the City of Houston’s prize historical artifacts. The Louis and Annie Friedman Clock Tower houses the original clockworks of the city’s fourth city hall that was located on Market Square.
Originally crated up after the old City Hall’s demise, the clock somehow ended up in an amusement park in East Texas. The city brought it back to Houston in 1988 and in 1996 paired it with a 2800-pound fire bell that survived the 1903 City Hall fire. The 65-foot tall tower now stands watch across from the newly re-developed Market Square.

This month’s City Daily Photo Community theme is “Mail Box”.
I’ve featured photos of John Milkovisch’s Beer Can house before… HERE and HERE, but today’s features… Yes, you guessed it. The mail box.
