Don’t eat the art at Austin-Bergstrom Airport

To: Austin, From: Austin,” the new multi-media art exhibit on view at Austin Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), includes “spiraling stalks of glistening steel, free poured bronze sculpture in amorphous shapes and the gentle grace of a ceramic winged foot.”  While the exhibit includes Austin-made works using traditional media such as metal, clay and wood, there’s also an unusual selection of art made from carved peanuts.

Yes, peanuts!

Ismael Cavazos transforms peanuts into faces, animal shapes, and other images that are so small that you’ll need a magnifying glass to see them. Luckily, that’s how the peanut-art is displayed. So have fun peering at the peanuts!
