Edible Symbols

In April they had the traffic-stopping (literally) Art City Austin event downtown. A lower key part of it was a display of art in unoccupied retail space. For some reason one artist wanted to have a bake sale in Republic Park as a kind of performance art. They also had a dedication of the renovations around the Treaty Oaks in that park, I think, but I just got there when it was just a bake sale. These guitars were on offer. This is the kind of low-key thing I prefer to snarling traffic for three days and bringing in a bunch of artists from other places and making you pay $8 to walk places you usually walk (or worse, just have to go around at night).
