These days it’s the in thing for towns to have some kind of themed public art project where different businesses and landmarks display instances of the theme. In Austin’s case, it’s Guitartown.

While Guitartown speaks to Austin’s heritage as “Live Music Capital of the World”, Austin has other traditions to draw on. We’re a hi-tech town. And we’re an eco-friendly town.

Austin writer Julie Ardery, of the Human Flower Project, reports on the Mac Planter…computer cases recycled into flower planters. Those colorful Mac cases look charming with petunias tumbling over them.

Although it’s true that the idea sprouted in New York, Austin could own this.
