Some San Antonio Art:

 Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy ~ Kathy Matthews
This red sculpture was given to the City of San Antonio in 2002 by the Association of Mexican Entrepreneurs.  It is called "The Torch of Friendship", and is located downtown.

The Grand Hyatt had some interesting art.  Some was functional, and some was purely decorative.

Even planters were turned into works of art when covered in mosaic tiles.

Beautiful! Art All Over the Place would make a good coffee table book title!

Was the glass work by Dale Chihuly?

Wonderfully decorative. I like mosaics (Ancient Rome etc), but these are altogether different. I don’t know why I’ve been so slow to make the connection but there is a special link between San Antonio and Lanzarote. If you look at my husband’s blog The Lanzarote They Left Behind you may be surprised. He set it up especially for the families who went from here to found San Antonio.

What an incredible amount of tile work. Just beautiful. That is quite a town.

Oh my gosh! What beautiful "things" for lack of a better word...and me, a writer! I'm just kind of tired this evening and have been fighting a headache. I think it's sinuses, but aggravating! You take such gorgeous photos, kathy!
