This gem was created by the time I resurfaced here in Austin - circa July 4, 2009 *Independence day!) I'd been gone 20 years since my college days - and lots had happened. Two MAJOR East/West highways had gone through renovations, I certainly hadn't missed that... lots of the landmarks from my college days were now gone - but - in 2002 this building had appeared. It's where large events are held - and most recently we had gone to the Citywide Garage Sale. While nothing was purchased, I had a heyday with my iPhone, as the venue was by far more elegant than the event it hosted.
I'd totally forgotten about the applied elements - these creatures that were cast and stuck to the limestone faced walls. Isn't this just wonderful?
What an absolutely spectacular space! I do have to wonder though about the inspiration for the item below... any ideas?? smiles - Jill
