Stroud, Oklahoma: Alien Yard Art

Flying saucers and mysterious cattle mutilations seem to have inspired yard artist Craig McGuire along Route 66. His invasion scenes make liberal use of junk and aluminum foil.
Historic Route 66, Stroud, OK
On the north side of Route 66 on the west edge of town. Just west of 9th St., turn north into the gravel parking area. You'll see the saucer to the right, behind a house on the next street north (W. 4th St.).

Flying saucer in the back yard.

Alien Yard Art

This alien yard art was in the back yard of a house on the edge of Stroud, Oklahoma. It was plainly visible on the north side of old Route 66. It was raining when I drove by, so I didn't get to talk to the owner or anything.

[Mark Passwaters, 11/10/2009]

Nicely augmented with skulls (mysterious cattle mutilation?), old CDs, and a Laserdisc mounted to a refrigerator shelf as an antenna. The saucer (and accompanying art) is the work of the yard owner, Craig McGuire.
