Looking to do something a little different?  The Mindfield Sculpture an hour drive from Memphis in Brownsville, TN (towards Nashville).   Artist Billy Tripp started the structure in 1989 and he’s still working on it.  The sculpture is the story of his life.

A friend of mine recently made this trip.  She said there is a “nice little restaurant called the Mindfield Grill in the parking lot along the side of the sculpture, with great service and delicious food,” so you won’t starve while you’re there.  Her disclaimer: “it’s literally just an expansive sculpture incorporating all kinds of things, from a water tower, to the treads of a military tank, to a bathtub, all sandwiched between buildings in the town square in Brownsville.”

So if you’re feeling a bit quirky, and have kids who like unusual/creative things, this trip might just be your kind of thing.  This could be a great stop on the way to Nashville.  Thanks Betsy (and Rick too).
