Midland, Michigan: John Pratt Mosaic House

Outsider artist John Pratt died in 1997, but not before he covered the outside walls of his house with colorful bits of ceramic and bottle caps. Current stewards of the property conduct tours. There's a plan to move the mosaics to another location.

Mosaic House

John Pratt Mosaic House

Located on M-20 a bit west of Midland. This house is extensively decorated in elaborate mosaic patterns comprised of bits of mirror, ceramic, nuts, bottle caps etc. I believe that this display is sponsored by an organization called The Creative Spirit Center.
