If you find yourself in Pittsburgh, PA, be sure to take a trip to a magical place called Randyland. Randyland is an incredible DIY art museum that a man named Randy Gilson constructed in his own yard. I had an awesome time there over the weekend, and I'll be back again as soon as I can.
Next to an unmistakable rainbow building you'll find the outdoor oasis filled with sculptures, rainbow murals, and exciting oddities. It's considered to be one of the United States most colorful landmarks. Many of the objects on display at randyland came from up-cycling and dumpster diving. Gilson is also an activist and has planted over 800 street gardens and 50 vegetable gardens around Pittsburgh! Randyland is a free exhibit, but you can donate here if you would like to help support the museum.
