Seurat in Wisconsin, and what about Austin?

Friends of the River in Beloit, Wisconsin, gathered recently to recreate impressionist George Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte.

Recreation of a painting by George Seurat

Be sure to see the animation of how they did it.

It would be wonderful if other towns appropriated this idea and recreated paintings that resonate with local landmarks. Austin would need something altogether weirder. With this summer's heat I keep thinking of Dalí's sun-blasted landscapes although Austin doesn't look much like that. I suppose one could half-recreate Le déjeuner sur l'herbe at Barton Springs (or more fully at Hippie Hollow). Any more geographically apt candidates?
