On the side of the H.B. Gonzalez Convention Center facing the Tower of the Americas on the northeastern edge of HemisFair Park are seven beautiful art “nooks” or “grottos.” Six of the nooks hold artworks and one nook is mysteriously empty. From left to right the grotto artists are: 1) Say Si; 2) Carlos Alvez; 3) Alex De Leon; 4) empty; 5)Benito Huerta; 6) Cakky Brawley; and 7) David Zamora Casas.
I have walked by the nooks at different times of the day but rarely see anyone enjoying the art. The addition of some benches might encourage people to stay a little while and contemplate the art.
