Lady Bug VWs

Sign out front said you had to go to nearby (but not that nearby) Muenster for a wristband for entry. Gates were locked. Disappointing. Couldn't see much from the fence line.

Lady Bug VWs

Interesting place.

[Mike Spivey, 03/21/2020]

In addition to the Lady Bug VWs, other artworks in the pasture -- all constructed by the same local guy -- include "Sunflowers" made of rotary aircraft engines welded atop oil drill pipes.

Lady Bug VWs and Other Big Folk Art

The only thing left that you could see was five red Volkswagen's lined up and a few iron things. Not worth the trip in or out.

VW lady bugs.

Lady Bug VWs and Other Big Folk Art

There was a gate but no lock. I think it is there to keep cattle from getting out, but allows people to come in and see the art work.

VWs in a field.

VW Bugs and Art

The VW Bugs are surrounded by irrigation pipe cactus, flowers, and other art in the middle of a quiet little German area of Texas. Left off of Hwy 82 heading West from Gainesville, they sit in a large field surrounded by fence, so you can't get right up to them. I'm sure this discourages people from defacing them. The other art is fun to take in as well!
