"...In this case, I am moved by Forster's willingness to complicate the common perception of American suburbs which, at least in the last few decades, has been one of disdain. It's easy to intellectualize the shortcomings of suburban sprawl, but in reality, as with most human endeavors, it is a far more complex – and far more interesting – matter than it may at first appear.

"...Ryan Montgomery's oil painting Buttermilk Pie probably shouldn't interest me as much as it does, but even before I saw it in person, the image in the catalog for "The People's Gallery 2017" caught my attention.

"...If you're impressed by the sculpture suspended from the main dining room's ceiling at Mettle, Bridget Dunlap's new restaurant in the southwest corner of the refurbished warehouse complex at 507 Calles, you could walk across the wide hall to East Side Glass Studio and see what other wonders the artist Leigh Taylor Wyatt has created. You might have to scoot around a cluster of people in that art-filled gallery, though, because folks have crowded over from a beer tasting at the popular Hops & Grain Brewery just a little farther down the concrete-floored walkway..."
"...The structure now known as the Jones Center, located at the corner of Seventh & Congress, has been a part of Downtown since 1851, when it was young Austin's first three-story brick building.
