Art in commerce

Art in Austin includes some handsome commercial displays. One sign of the season is the array in front of GSD&M on the way to Sweetish Hill, particularly the stack of armadillos placing the star atop the lighted tree (the work of Blue Genie art). While walking from a few streets away to the fabulous Gardens, I caught the new sign for the orthodontist next door, a frog agleam with braces. At Gardens, the temptations were many, but were resisted, apart from the nonpareil stock of nasturtium seeds, particularly climbing (or trailing, if preferred) varieties. I never fail to visit the display of terra cotta pots. They’re always modeled by the light just as though they were an art lesson. And I love the Whip-In sign for Ruta Maya. If there’s an artist’s credit for it, I didn’t see it.
