GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — A fast-food favorite in Texas is getting some artsy attention.

A wood-carved array of Dairy Queen items is on display at the Galveston Arts Center in an exhibit called "Thank You, Please Drive Through."

The Galveston County Daily News reports the show runs through Monday. Admission is free.

Galveston native Camp Bosworth, who now lives in Marfa, created the exhibit that includes a 5-foot-long carved banana split.

Center executive director Lisa Simmons-Shaw says the exhibit has been a big hit and attracted "a whole new crowd of visitors."

Curator Dennis Nance says Galveston's Dairy Queen was destroyed by Hurricane Ike in 2008. Nance says the show brings a bit of Dairy Queen to the area again.
