Works of Art at Benini Sculpture Ranch

In the lobby at the Benini sculpture ranch, a LaPaso kinetic sculpture, balanced so perfectly that it is in constant motion:

Outdoors, a giant mirror head:

One of the great things about this place (after the works of art, of course!) is that the gallery itself is air conditioned, and the outdoor sculpture is viewed while inside your car. Miles of road loop around and the sculptures are installed on both sides of the road. There's little or no traffic and you can stop in the road, roll down your window, and take pictures. A great road trip for August in Texas! From Austin, take Hwy. 71 west to Hwy. 281, then south on 281 to Johnson City, then Hwy. 290 west for a mile and a half, and watch for the metal Longhorn sculpture; turn left at the Longhorn and follow the signs to the sculpture ranch. http//
