Long Description:
~ from the Texas Pipe and Supply website ~
The Eclectic Menagerie Park was created by the owners of Texas Pipe several years back as a way to give back to the community. The art work displayed on this page is located at Texas Pipe's main facility in Houston Texas. It faces Interstate Highway 288, a major thoroughfare that runs through Houston, Texas. All of the art work has been designed and built by a local artist that has used steel or retired equipment from Texas Pipe. The park has continued to grow over the years, and there are currently 2 new sculptures in the works.
