James Tisdale’s ceramic sculpture, Squirrely, was announced the people’s choice among the 138 pieces of art displayed in this year’s City of Austin People’s Gallery show. The blue-faced, anthropomorphic squirrel, clutching a nut to it’s chest, was not intended as an interactive piece, but quickly became surrounded by coins and other small offerings from the 1600 visitors to the show’s opening. Squirrley and his offerings will reside on the first floor of City Hall Austin during the 2010 exhibition.
