Ogling Oddities at a Scrap Metal Art Yard in Houston, Texas
Former car parts and spoons take the shapes of mysterious creatures including prehistoric reptiles, bugs, and even aliens at Scrap Daddy's Art Yard. Art forms are scattered throughout this museum of sorts, among overgrown grass and metal scraps. Welder and gallery owner, Mark Bradford has an eclectic eye for art that has moved him to put his own distinctive mark on the many metal sculptures displayed in the outdoor gallery. Sights for innovative eyes include the 20-foot praying mantis (that I can’t get out of my mind), a flying saucer, and an automobile-sized scorpion. Bradford welcomes free visits to his yard daily.
