Smither Park 2D & 3D Permanent Mosaic Installations

Swing Logo

As a project of The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, Smither Park is designed to be a permanent, family friendly, “folk art” or “outsider art” installation and community gathering space located in an underserved area of southeast Houston, adjacent to the world famous Orange Show – considered one of the most important folk art monuments in the world. Set on a ½ acre lot, Smither Park runs 400’ wide by 50’ deep, and includes an amphitheater for performances, a covered pavilion for special events, a meditation garden, a set of three oversized bench swings, and an interactive tower. Running along all 400 feet at the back of the park is a memory wall, covered in mosaic sculpture by over 50 different artists. The park was designed by visionary artist and builder Dan Phillips of Phoenix Commotion, based out of Huntsville, TX. He is known for his innovative techniques in home-building, utilizing 80% of his resources from salvaged materials. Artists selected to work on Smither Park projects will be working directly with Phillips throughout completion.

Artists interested in submitting proposals for consideration should note that materials used within the mosaic sculptures at Smither Park are generally donated and/or repurposed. We encourage all of the artists to utilize this type of material as it promotes sustainability and compassion towards the environment.

Rules & Regulations
· Artists involved with the park are not allowed to pull ideas from inventory, copy anyone else, or otherwise create works that are not in the spirit of visionary art.
· Because The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art is a publicly supported entity, political, sexual, religious, or other personal agendas are not allowed in the design of the projects.
· It is a family park, and therefore must be family friendly as well. While nudes are allowed, for instance, they must be so abstracted that they will not become offensive to even the most conservative of park visitors.
· Donated materials are often agenda-specific objects, which are allowable, provided they are repurposed and placed in a different context.
· Words are allowed, but only sporadically, and one at a time.

Questions regarding submitting entries can be directed to Kat Mims, 713-926-6368, kat@orangeshow.org.
