If you think you don’t know what Gary Sweeney’s artwork looks like, you might be mistaken. His clever public-art projects seem to be seeping slowly into SA’s landscape. His Put-in-Cup installation at San Antonio Airport shows two menacing-looking German Shepherds book-ending a sign that reads “It’s Okay You’re Safe Now,” while eight porcelain enameled signs welcome visitors with messages like “Fiesta, Siesta, Repeat,” and “HemisFair ’68, you’re way too late.” For his most recent series of “text-based, humor-driven conceptualism,” Sweeney tackles metaphors with plenty of ironic charm and highjacked imagery.
