Dynamite Museum and

Hoof Prints of the American Quarter Horse

Various locations | Amarillo, TX

 

Funded by eccentric local millionaire Stanley Marsh 3, the "Dynamite Museum" is a collection of over 200 fake traffic signs placed throughout the city of Amarillo (with a concentration in the Old San Jacinto neighborhood). Diamond-shaped and similar in style to municipal traffic signs, these off-beat pieces of artwork are designed with a somewhat humorous intent in mind, boasting good-natured slogans such as “Road Does Not End,” “Love Makes the World Go Round,” “Lubbock is a Greasy Spoon,” and more.

 

See also Hoof Prints of the American Quarter Horse, a collection of over 75 quirky, full-sized, painted quarter horse statues around the city of Amarillo. These fiberglass replicas of an animal so vital to Amarillo’s past are painted by local artists as part of a project by Center City and title sponsor the American Quarter Horse Association which is headquartered in Amarillo.
