  1. I find it a little disturbing that a Texas State School has contracted a Sculpture of their Mascot with an Artist that is not a Texas based Sculptor… I would think with all the Qualified Texas based artist and Alumni, that the school would try to keep the project in the State.. It great to see us support other economic areas..
