The local art normally takes a Latin American twist to it and the Mexic-Arte Museum shows the pride the city has in its local artist. In the farmers markets you can find the local and organic foods. The city’s weird pride shows all over the city in its landmarks form: Hyde Park Bar & Grill fork, the Mangia dinosaur, the Loca Maria lady at Taco Xpress on South Lamar, the 'migrating' pink flamingos on the lawn in front of the Pots and Plants Garden Center, the Hyde Park Gym's giant flexed arm, and Daniel Johnston's Hi, how are you? frog mural.
