Art In Public Places

These trees on the University of Texas at Austin campus are all cozy and warm. They each have their own hand-knitted sweaters. There are 99 trees and fortunately for them, no two sweaters are exactly alike; no trees were embarrassed and wanted to go home and change.

This art in public places effort was part of the Knitted Wonderland Project. For a few weeks in March 2011, the plaza outside the Blanton Museum of Art looked like a Dr. Seuss forest. It was wonderful.

The Texas Capitol building is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. These photographs are two of my favorites now.
