#939 Grandma Prisbrey's Bottle Village
This fantastic assemblage is one of California's remarkable twentieth century folk art environments. In 1956 Tressa Prisbrey, then nearly 60 years old, started building a fanciful "village" of shrines, walkways, sculptures, and buildings from recycled items and discards from the local dump. She worked for 25 years creating one structure after another to house her collections. Today, Bottle Village is composed of 13 buildings and 20 sculptures.
