The Beatles & The Presidents?

Where else but Houston can you see the Beatles (as in Paul, Ringo, John & George) and the former Presidents of the United States? Today, Little K & I visited David Adickes Sculpturworx where the artist has on display what he calls "Mount Rushhour." I was surprised at my own delight. Little K wasn't sure about these gigantic presidential heads and I can assure you she has no idea who The Beatles are... much to her father's dismay.

This is a cool trip for history buffs or young students studying American history. From central or west Houston, take 1-10 toward downtown and exit Taylor. Continue through the light at Taylor (you'll see Target on the south side) until you come to Sawyer. Turn right on Sawyer and continue until you come to Summer. Turn right on Summer and continue until it deadends at 2500 Summer, which is Adickes' studio. Wear cool clothes and bring a camera. This was really cool. Great job, Mr. Adickes!

Until the next nap time...
