Art in Public Places

A new and controversial urban art installation opened this evening at the 4901 Strass Gallery in Austin, Texas. This is the third in a series of installation/performance pieces by renowned local artist, Cowboy the Roving Rottweiler. In a brief statement to the press, Cowboy suggested that his latest work is a political comment on “the planet’s need for greenness and sustainability balanced with his personal need for leftover BBQ and tastier pizza delivery boxes”. The show was quite the “Buzz” tonight. However, if you didn’t catch it, you’ll have to wait for the next one. Some savvy art collector has already scooped this one up.~Jackie Stence
